Fun with FedSys!

Yes, you too can delve into the incredible world of U.S. government documents! FedSys is the main portal nowadays to the federal government's online presence.

But once you go into that world, you can find all sorts of information treasures. Our article databases are great for articles, and our catalog for books, but the various government agencies put out a vast array of reports, statistics and so on that are just incredible. Just a few examples: the FBI Uniform Crime Reports, the weather statistics from NOAA, geological records from the USGS, federal budget information, hearing, public laws and other congressional activity from Thomas... See our guide to US Government information resources to learn more.
