                          INTRODUCTION



     This is a brief guide to collections of major U.S. government

publications in the Library of Congress, originally prepared by

Jean C. Sansobrino and revised by Karen A. Wood.  It is a highly

selective list of primary executive, judicial, and legislative

materials, including guides, indexes, report collections,

periodicals, and other sources dealing with federal matters.



     The guide is divided into three sections:



     *  The first is an alphabetical list of the major government

        and government-related collections with a brief description

        of each.



     *  The second is a chart, also arranged alphabetically,

        indicating the call numbers, dates of coverage, and reading

        rooms where the publications can be found.



     *  The last part is a bibliography of reference sources giving

        further information for identifying and locating U.S.

        government documents.



     Though some of these items are also available through the

general collection with their own call numbers, the chart only

provides the location of collected sets of material in the

following reading rooms of the Library of Congress:  Law Library

Reading Room, Main Reading Room, Microform Reading Room, Newspaper

and Current Periodical Reading Room, Science Reading Room, and

Social Science Reading Room.



     Some of the same materials appear in different collections in

different formats throughout the Library.  For example,

Congressional bills and resolutions, committee hearings, committee

prints, and committee reports exist as separate entries; these

publications are also available in the various CONGRESSIONAL

INFORMATION SERVICE sets.  Appropriate cross-references are made

for related entries.



     Access to Congressional information files is possible through

the Library of Congress computerized data bases.  These files

provide details on federal legislation since 1973, which include

the bill's content, sponsorship, status, public law number and

other relevant information.  Computer terminals are available in

the reading rooms cited in this guide for access to these files.  



     This finding aid is intended primarily for the reference

staffs of the Library's reading rooms, although we hope that

Library readers also will find it informative and useful.  Please

consult a reference librarian for any clarification or assistance

you may need.
