Summary
This handbook will show users how to do legal research in the wider and sometimes confusing world of government documents, and is organized intuitively to help the novice. Because many government documents are available freely online, this book is designed to be used in tandem with Internet resources. It can be used as a quick reference tool to navigate the citation formats and unique government information portals, to aid in understanding the material, to find related non-government resources, and to answer some subject-based questions about the availability of government documents. Appendixes cover often-used document numbers and citations, an explanation of the Freedom of Information Act and how to use it to find government documents, and further information and training resources.--Publisher
