Amen, Kathleen L.
This is a guide to a select number of government publications contained in the library collection of St. Mary's University (Texas). The guide includes primary materials only in significant compilations or in long runs covering many years, and major secondary reference works, with particular emphasis on bibliographies. In addition, information is provided about publications of specific agencies, usually those with a limited scope, that may be of interest to the historian. The following types of documents have been included: (1) general guides, manuals, and bibliographies; (2) other general reference books and general series; (3) history of governmental institutions; (4) statistics; (5) biography; and (6) specialized topics (area studies, historic places, ancient history and archeology, social and labor history, history of science and technology, military history, and archives). Each entry title is followed by its call number and a brief annotation. A subject, title, and agency index concludes the guide. (MAB)
