If you are looking for government publications, such as regulations, bills, hearings and more, try Govinfo.  It provides free public access to official publications from all three branches of the Federal Government such as: the Congressional Record, congressional publications of all kinds, the Federal Register, Code of Federal Regulations, Supreme Court decisions, executive branch documents and more. is another way to find government documents, reports and websites.  You can enter keywords on the homepage to search a wide range of agencies at once.

Or, to target publications from a particular government agency (Army, FEMA, NASA, etc.), visit's List of Government Agencies.  Most agency websites will have a "publications" section (look in their navigation menu, or use the site search to find a keyword).
