This page is an attempt to provide current awareness of federal government reports and activities. The page will be updated weekly to provide links to important, newsworthy, or interesting material published during the previous week. The goal is to keep the links to a manageable number for readers, not to be a comprehensive listing. All links are captured in the Internet Archive if possible, and a list of earlier roundups is available.
Please keep in mind that government agencies may present material in a way that reads favorably for the government. You are encouraged to consult other resources (e.g. newspapers) for additional information and/or context.
Note: the GovInfo at UC San Diego Library Facebook page has been discontinued, but the weekly roundup will continue to be posted on this page. You can sign up for email notifications of updates by hovering over the Weekly Roundup tab above and clicking "Receive Notifications," then entering your email address and hitting the subscribe button on the right side of the page.
