The Federal Register is the official daily publication for Presidential Documents, Executive Orders, proposed, interim, and final rules and regulations, and notices by Federal Agencies, as well as notices of hearings, decisions, investigations, and committee meetings. The Federal Register has been published by the National Archives and Records Administration since 1936 and consists of several distinct parts.
A citation to the Federal Register–for example "77 Fed. Reg. 58945 (Sept. 25, 2012)"–gives you several pieces of information, including the volume number (in this example, the citation refers you to volume 77), the page number of that volume (here, page number 58945), and the date of the issue of the Federal Register where the publication appears (here, September 25th, 2012). The Law Library of Congress blog provides a Beginner's Guide that may be of assistance with your research in the Federal Register.

Clicking the volume link will bring up search results from that volume only. Search results will be listed in chronological order from Jan 1 through end of December.
