Description

USA.gov is the federal government's attempt to create a one stop shopping mall for government information. Options include a directory of agencies; popular topics; reference sources, such as news releases, forms, and laws and regulations; and online services for citizens, businesses, and federal, state, and local governments. The search engine indexes both federal and state publications.

Frequently Asked Questions of the U.S. Government offers FAQs about USA.gov, FAQs about popular topics; and FAQs prepared by multiple federal agencies.

Cross Agency Portals lists gateways to subject portals covering dozens of topics.

USA.gov is the most comprehensive single site for federal government information. However, as with any shopping mall, regardless of its size, chances are slim that you will always find all you need in one place. Consult a librarian if you do not find what you need on USA.gov. The data might be available elsewhere.

Consult videos for additional information. Selected tutorials provide an overview of USA.gov, and explain how to search the Web site, complete online forms, shop at government auctions and sales, research government benefits and grants, locate lists of frequently asked questions (FAQs), and find local government offices.
