Depending upon your objective, several ways to access federal government information could be helpful: Ben's Guide to U. S. Government is a basic (for kids) but helpful resource if you are just beginning to explore the complexities of the federal government and GPO Access is a good place to search for news and current events regarding federal government information, particularly with the A-Z resource list.
Library Of Unified Information Sources (LOUIS) -- a comprehensive, completely indexed and cross-referenced depository of federal documents from the executive and legislative branches of government. Currently contains, in fully searchable format, seven sets of federal documents: Congressional Reports, Congressional Record, Congressional Hearings, the Federal Register, Presidential Documents, GAO Reports, and Bills and Resolutions.
Please note this database can also be accessed through USC electronic resources linked to the USC Libraries website.
