Locating U.S. Government Publications in the Dartmouth College Library.
This guide to searching government documents provides a subject list, including LC call numbers, of 15 government publications indexes in the Dartmouth College Library and an explanation of U.S. government documents organization and coding. Detailed descriptions of each of the 15 indexes include sample entries with labels identifying the codes and numbers used. Two indexes described in detail are the Congressional Information Service/Index, for which examples show use of the index to locate abstracts of congressional publications, and the American Statistics Index. A sample search of the latter explains the steps involved in locating statistical information, with 20 suggestions for searching. Sample entries by race, sex, and state illustrate the types of detailed statistical data provided by the index. (SW)
