Discover the depth of government information and services available online.

The United States Government Internet Directory serves as a guide to the changing landscape of government information online. The Directory is an indispensable guidebook for anyone who is looking for official U.S. government resources on the Web. The U.S. government's online information is massive and can be difficult to locate. Many government sites are part of the "Deep Web" with content that does not surface or surface easily with even the most popular search engines. It is more important than ever to have a source that serves as an authoritative guide to the federal Web. The United States Government Internet Directory helps to navigate the maze of data and locate the materials that you seek.

The subject-based approach of this book allows you to browse for relevant sites in your field of interest rather than sift through hundreds of search results or try to guess which federal agency to consult. Researchers, business people, teachers, students, and citizens in the United States and around the world can navigate the labyrinthine federal Web with The United States Government Internet Directory.

The Directory:

  • contains more than 1,800 Web site records, organized into 21 subject themed chapters
  • includes topics on a wide-range of subjects including employment, energy, defense and intelligence, culture and recreation, and much more
  • provides descriptions and URLs for each site

Reviews and Recommendations

"The book is very well organized. The description of how the book is organized in the Introduction, the clear chapter titles and the order in which the chapters are laid out are all user-friendly, 'natural,' and would even be interesting to go through for a non-information specialist…. My opinion is that this is an important resource tool. Even the most computer-savvy information specialist benefits from being able to turn pages and scan the options visually. There is no equivalent on the Web."

      Jacqueline Davis, Librarian, Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center


"The book is well-organized and easy-to-use. Each website is uniformly presented with name, URL, alternate URL, description, subject areas covered and publications. With entry consistency, it facilitates finding the needed data as the user doesn't waste time trying to figure what is included…. I would recommend the book for library collections both academic, public, and law libraries as well as to graduate students, faculty, and researchers."

      Mae N. Schreiber, Associate Professor of Bibliography, Bierce Library, Reference Dept., University of Akron


"One of the more helpful compilations of online Federal Government information to date.… Readable, understandable and lucid; the entries are clear summaries of the vital government information. One cannot corral the entirety of online Federal information, [but] Garvin realizes this problem before it becomes a serious issue. Thus one of the best features of the book is the introductory section devoted to 'finding aids.'… I recommend this book for all levels of librarianship."

      Steve Shaw, Reference/BI Librarian, Prairie View A&M University
