Subject Guide to Major United States Government Publications.
This guide is a listing of government documents under alphabetically arranged subject headings. Recent works of current major interest are included. Brief annotations and explanatory notes are given when the title does not indicate the document's nature. Reference is given, where appropriate, to general indexes and Public Documents Division price lists. Each entry includes full title, pagination, note of illustrations and charts, series note, and Superintendent of Documents classification number. The subject headings are modified from Library of Congress practice. A final 16-page section (by W. W. Katz) lists, and describes the use of general and subject guides, catalogs and indexes, congressional publications, subject indexes and selection aids, and additional aids to special areas which are available to users of government documents. The volume is primarily designed as a guidebook to government documents for reference librarians and library-school students. (AL)
