U.S. Government Information: WR 11/30/19

Guide to information resources by and about the federal government.

About this page

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.

Each Monday, our GovInfo at UC San Diego Library Facebook page will link back to this page for the latest update. You're welcome to follow us there if you'd like to receive notifications. You can also get notified of updates by hovering over the Weekly Roundup tab and clicking "Receive Notifications," then entering your email address and hitting the subscribe button.

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.

Special Note this Week

This page is dedicated to highlighting resources that are freely available online. However, as many readers may have access to the subscription-based HeinOnline database, I wanted to note that content from the Whistleblower tab above is now also available in a new "U.S. Presidential Impeachment Library" collection in that database. More info is available in a HeinOnline blog post.

The whistleblower page will remain active and freely available on this UCSD guide, and will continue to add new links as they become available.
