How do I find federal government web site addresses?

Answer:

Four ways you can find federal government web site addresses are by:

  1. Looking in Federal Agency Directory: http://www.lib.lsu.edu/gov/fedgov.html
  2. Looking in the U.S. Government Manual:

    http://www.gpoaccess.gov/gmanual/index.html

    Latest edition of U.S. Government Manual print copies are held in:
    • At Call No. JK421.A3:
      • WILSON Reference
      • JOURNALISM
      • WALTER SCI/ENG
    • At Call No. AE2.108/2:
      • WILSON GOV PUB
      • ENT/FISH/WILD
      • MAGRATH GOV PUB
      • FORESTRY Reference
      • VETERINARY MEDICINE GOV PUB (US)
    • BIO-MED Reference at Call No. JK421.U57
  3. Government Information on the Internet. Greg Notess.
  4. Latest edition held at the Government Publications Library Reference Desk.

The first two directories have significant overlap, but if you have trouble finding a government web site in one, try the other. The U.S. Government Manual has information about the agencies as well as their web site addresses.
