United States Government Documents: The Congress, the Presidency, and the Courts.

Lynn Thitchener, Government Selector. With gratitude to Fred Muratori, creator of the original US Government Documents guide.


This guide provides links to licensed document databases (restricted to the Cornell community), freely available web sources, and the print and microform holdings in Olin Library and the Library Annex.

Cornell University Library subscribes to a number of document databases (licensed for the campus community) that provide deep backfiles and cross-searching capabilities. In addition, Olin Library has a historical collection of federal government documents.





Olin Library is one of three Federal Depository Libraries at Cornell, along with the Law Library and Mann Library.
