FEDWORLD.gov (a program of the United States Department of Commerce)
In 1992, FedWorld was established by The National Technical Information Service (NTIS), an agency of the U.S. Department of Commerce, to serve as the online locator service for a comprehensive inventory of information disseminated by the Federal Government. This service assisted agencies and the public in electronically locating Federal Government information, both information housed within the NTIS repository and outside of NTIS.

This site is a platform to help those in agencies working on providing digital services and information for the public. We’ll scour the innerwebs for digital info so you don’t have to. Expect posts on what government is doing in digital, general digital news, trends and issues on implementing digital for the public.
This platform is brought to you by the Office of Citizen Services and Innovative Technologies in the U.S. General Services Administration. Our job here is to help agencies build a 21st century digital government. Digital Projects Registry
The Digital Registry is a directory listing of U.S. Government publication digitization efforts. Its goal is to provide a comprehensive listing of all these digitization efforts.
Before the Internet, U.S. Government publications were distributed in tangible format to Federal depository libraries and were made available for purchase from U.S. Government Bookstores across the United States and its territories and commonwealths.
Today, as U.S. Government agencies make information available on their Web sites, there has been an effort to digitize the tangibly distributed U.S. Government publications so that all these publications are accessible online. Libraries, government agencies, or other non-profit institutions contribute their time and resources to obtain official tangible copies of these publications, digitize them, and make them publicly available online. Website will sunset on 12/31/2018 and be preserved in the FDLP web archive.
Combined Arms Research Library Digital Library
The collections contained within the Combined Arms Research Library Digital Library are largely composed of digital versions of paper documents from the Combined Arms Research Library collections and student papers produced at the US Army Command and General Staff College. They have recently partnered with several Army educational and historical organizations whose collections appear here also.
Internet Archive Government Documents
This collection contains digital versions of United States Government documents as well as other government documents.
“At NASA, we are celebrating this opportunity to extend free access to our extensive portfolio of scientific and technical publications,” NASA Deputy Administrator Dava Newman says. “Through open access and innovation we invite the global community to join us in exploring Earth, air, and space.” From here on out, any NASA-funded research articles in peer-reviewed journals must comply to its new policy. This requires that papers be published and uploaded to the portal within one year of publication so that they are freely accessible to anyone. The only exception is studies that involve patents and material governed by personal privacy, proprietary, or security laws.
Many government publications become known by short titles that appear nowhere on the piece, and since libraries catalog them under constitutional titles, a device for tying the two together is needed. This database has not been updated since 2006.
This site offers free, printable versions of the founding documents of our Republic, including the U.S. Constitution, Bill of Rights, Declaration of Independence, and other rights laid out by America's founders. Carry copies of the entire Constitution as a handy foldable booklet, or refer to one Article or Amendment at a time. From a patriotically illustrated Bill of Rights bookmark to a parchment-look version of the Constitution, you can easily reference the fundamental laws and governing documents of the United States of America. All of the printable documents at this site are free.
The general purpose of the index is to provide starting points for browsing subject areas, bringing both broad and detailed subject listings from many libraries together in one index. It aims to provide a single place to find link collections on particular subjects, taking advantage of the varied organizational schemes and terminologies developed by depository libraries and other organizations.
