"Government documents" is the generic term for information distributed by the federal and state governments via their respective official depository programs. Examples include current and proposed laws (ex: the PATRIOT Act), current and proposed regulations (ex: those governing what businesses may and may not do), and decisions made in federal courts (the circuit courts and the Supreme Court). Government information is available in multiple formats: traditional print documents, microfilm and microfiche, CD-ROMs and DVDs, and online. Government documents at TAMUCC are organized by the Superintendent of Documents (SuDocs) classification system and can be searched online by call number, keyword, or title.
