The purpose of this LibGuide is to provide users of the Butler University Libraries access to a variety of resources that contain information pertaining to local, state, and federal government.

This guide was originally created by Emily Allen, Part-Time Reference Librarian from Jan. 2007 - May 2009.

Government Information

Finding government information can be rather challenging. The best way to use this guide is to locate the government office that would contain the information you need. If you are unsure of which office would be most appropriate, it may be better for you to search one of the general government websites on the main federal government tab.

Butler University Libraries offers a multitude of online databases containing resources that are helpful when searching for government information.
