Government Websites and Documents

Government documents are an excellent source for primary and official texts. Some governments put their information online where it is easily accessible, while other documents are more difficult to obtain.

Take a look in the UTA library catalogue, and also look in other library catalogues (using WorldCat). You can make use of ILL (Interlibrary Loan) to get copies of relevant documents if UTA does not have them!

If you have any questions about government documents, please contact your History Librarian (me) or your Government Documents Librarian (Tom Lindsey)
