Search Tips


A large percentage of government information is available online directly from the federal and state agencies and departments.

If you know the agency or department involved in your area of research, you can search the agency's website directly. If you're not sure where to begin, try the search tricks below:

In Google, you can use this search technique. Enter "" + keyword(s). This will search for your keyword(s) on all sites that have the domain .gov.
