San Diego Government Information: Home


This guide points to a variety of websites that provide information about governments at the city, county and regional level. A few resources listed in this guide are subscription-based products, and are available remotely only to students/staff/faculty of UC San Diego; these resources are clearly identified by a blue lock symbol. 

UC San Diego also has a wealth of local government information in print format; these may be found by searching our online catalog. The catalog's advanced keyword search function allows limiting a search only to local documents.
