Find Government Publications using Google

One way is to use Google Advanced Search

  • Enter your topic's keywords and then, in the Search by Site or Domain box, type: .gov
    • This will get you federal and some state publications
    • To search just for a particular state, type: .[two-letter state abbreviation].us - e.g.: (Oregon) or (Tennessee).  See all the two-letter state abbreviations here. Searching on the domain will also bring up city and county government documents for that state.
  • For non-US (foreign) countries, you can try limiting to the country domain extension.  However, you may also need to find the government domain abbreviation, if there is one. E.g., for Mexico, that is
    • Documents will mostly be in the language of that country, and thus must be searched for in that language.
