Overview

Discover the depth of government information and services available online.

The United States Government Internet Directory serves as a guide to the changing landscape of government information online. The Directory is an indispensable guidebook for anyone who is looking for official U.S. government resources on the Web. The U.S. government's online information is massive and can be difficult to locate. Many government sites are part of the "Deep Web" with content that does not surface or surface easily with even the most popular search engines. It is more important than ever to have a source that serves as an authoritative guide to the federal Web. The United States Government Internet Directory navigates the maze of data and locates the materials that you seek.

The subject-based approach of this book allows you to browse for relevant sites in your field of interest rather than sift through hundreds of search results or try to guess which federal agency to consult. Researchers, business people, teachers, students, and citizens in the United States and around the world can navigate the labyrinthine federal Web with The United States Government Internet Directory.

The Directory:

  • contains more than 1,800 Web site records, organized into 21 subject themed chapters
  • includes topics on a wide-range of subjects including employment, energy, defense and intelligence, culture and recreation, and much more
  • provides descriptions and URLs for each site
  • describes sites to help you choose the proper resource
  • notes the useful or unique aspects of the site
  • lists some of the major government publications hosted on the site
  • contains useful, up-to-date organizational charts for the major federal government agencies
  • provides a roster of congressional members with member's Web sites
  • lists House and Senate Committees with committee URLs
  • includes a one-page Quick Guide to the major federal agencies and the leading online library, data source, and finding aid sites
  • identifies the major government Web sites related to the global recession and new government economic recovery programs

The 2014 edition contains two new appendixes which provide information on U.S embassies abroad as well as foreign embassies in the United States.



Editorial Reviews

American Reference Books Annual
The United States Government Internet Manual is an essential finding aid to these many online documents and federal government Websites. This manual provides an intuitive arrangement by topic, agency or organization, and publication title (for some government documents) and is intended to be a companion guide to The United States Government Manual. Revised each year with new entries added, and sites deemed to be less useful removed, the 2014 manual contains more than 1,800 entries in 21 chapters plus a quick guide to primary agency Websites and organizational charts for those agencies, four appendixes (Members of Congress, Congressional Committees, U.S. Embassies Abroad, and Foreign Embassies in the United States), and an index. Chapter 1 is devoted to online finding aids developed specifically for government information; chapters 2-21 are arranged by broad subject heading with several subdivisions. Each entry is composed of the entry number, site title, URL (usually one, but occasionally one or more alternate URLs are listed), site sponsor (agency or organization), a description of the site, subject headings, and a list of publications available through the Website if appropriate. The introduction includes standard information regarding scope, organization, content, and “How to Use this Book.” The United States Government Internet Manual 2014 is recommended for all libraries—public, academic, school, and special libraries.
