Brudno Consultant January 21, 1997 CONGRESSIONAL OFFICE USE ONLY Congressional Research Service · The Library of Congress WHERE TO GET PUBLICATIONS FROM THE EXECUTIVE AND INDEPENDENT AGENCIES SUMMARY This is a directory of sources that congressional offices may use to obtain publications from the Executive Office of the President, the executive departments, and the independent agencies and commissions of the federal government. Also included is information on the Superintendent of Documents, the U.S. Government Printing Office, and the federal government’s printing policies; suggestions on what to do when a publication is out of print; and information on where copies of government publications may be obtained on the Internet. The information for each agency includes address, telephone number, fax number, and Internet e-mail address and World Wide Web (WWW) site, where available. Also included are selected notes on special publications, availability of catalogs, etc., as provided by the agency itself. (The report is produced for the use of congressional offices only.) Please Note: Federal government agencies change their telephone numbers and exchanges from time to time. Therefore, some of the telephone numbers in this report may be incorrect, and users could have difficulties reaching a particular number. If the number has been changed, there may be a recording referring to the new number. If this is not the case, the caller may have to telephone the appropriate congressional liaison office, government operator, or area code plus 555-1212 to obtain the agency’s correct number.

"Where do we call to get published material for constituents?" "How can you tell what’s available for giveaway?" This manual will help answer these kinds of questions. Government publications needed by congressional offices may be conveniently divided between those published by Congress itself and those prepared by the various executive and independent agencies. Many of these publications are now first available electronically on computer databases and a growing number of Internet World Wide Web sites for both the Congress and the executive branch agencies. These sources vary in reliability and ease of use, and often change their addresses without warning. Internet and computer database information is included below. Specific World Wide Web sites, where available, are included in the listings for the specific agencies. Printed congressional publications are sometimes supplied to the offices automatically. Numbered congressional reports and documents are usually available from the House Legislative Resource Center (LRC)/House Document Room and the Senate Document Room; committee prints and hearings can be obtained from the issuing committees. These are not generally available from the Congressional Research Service, except on a loan basis. Both the LRC/House Library (ext. 5-0462) and Senate Library (ext. 4-7106) or the Law Library of the Library of Congress (ext. 7-2700 or 7-5080) will also supply copies of hearings and committee prints to Members on loan. The publications from the executive and independent agencies are more difficult to obtain because of the multiplicity of sources involved. It is with these that this manual is concerned. The most appropriate places to call are listed below and we recommend pursuing them in the following sequence: THE EXECUTIVE OR INDEPENDENT AGENCY WHICH ISSUED THE PUBLICATION A few agencies in the federal government conduct general publication programs, preparing and distributing pamphlets to the public. These agencies CRS-2 receive appropriations for this purpose, and the resulting publications are stocked and distributed by the information offices within the agencies themselves. Many of the agencies, however, do not distribute their own publications, but prepare them with the expectation that they will be placed on sale and distributed by the Superintendent of Documents. These agencies do not receive appropriations to stock their publications in any quantity and, as a rule, must refer public requests for them to the U.S. Government Printing Office (GPO). These agencies retain a limited number of their publications for official use within the agency, and it is their usual practice to share this supply with Members of Congress. This source is addressed in the directory that follows. In this publication, we have compiled information from over a hundred of the larger executive branch bureaus and departments, as well as the independent agencies. In each case, the agency was asked to furnish us with the address, telephone number, fax number, and Internet e-mail and World Wide Web addresses, if available, of the proper unit from which to request publications. Information on publications of particular interest to Members of Congress is sometimes included in the notes. Without exception, every agency indicated its willingness to serve congressional offices to the limit of its ability. In every case, we were assured that any publications they had available could be sent to a Member for personal use, and the majority of the offices indicated their desire to assist the Member with constituent requests. Limitations based on security classifications, scarcity, or unusual expense are occasionally encountered. All of the agencies are limited in the number of publications they can distribute by Paragraph 39 of the February 1990 Government Printing and Binding Regulations published by the Joint Committee on Printing: Departments shall not make free distribution of any publication to any private individual or private organization in quantities exceeding 50 copies without prior approval of the Joint Committee on Printing. This quantity limitation shall not apply when the production cost of the publications to be distributed is less than $100. In the ensuing pages, the organizations are listed alphabetically within the following major categories: · · · Executive Office of the President Executive departments Independent agencies and commissions CRS-3 The table of contents lists the agencies as they appear within this categorical structure. The index lists all agencies in a single alphabet, using variant names and key words where useful. CRS-4 THE SUPERINTENDENT OF DOCUMENTS, U.S. GOVERNMENT PRINTING OFFICE The Superintendent of Documents maintains a constantly changing stock of approximately 21,000 different titles, which are distributed for sale to the general public. Rather than attempting constant revision of a single catalog of these titles, the Superintendent prepares a variety of lists which identify government publications currently in print by subject. These printed Subject Bibliographies are frequently revised and are available for free distribution to a Member’s office on request, by telephone (202) 512-1808 or by writing to the Superintendent of Documents, U.S. Government Printing Office, Document Sales Service, Washington, DC 20401. (Note: Members may also wish to refer their constituents to one of the 24 GPO bookstores located in major cities in the United States. A list of these with addresses may be found in the United States Government Manual.) Offices that are unable to secure titles requested by a constituent may wish to send instead the appropriate Subject Bibliography. This will either identify the title required or list similar material which the constituent can secure by sending the order blank included in the Subject Bibliography and a remittance directly to the Superintendent of Documents. If an office has been unable to secure a publication it needs from the issuing agency and wishes to purchase it, a copy can be bought from the Superintendent of Documents in the same manner as the general public. In some cases, a book exchange arrangement carried on by the Documents Control Branch of the Superintendent of Documents may be helpful. Under this agreement it is sometimes possible for a Member to exchange publications he has received by allotment for other publications of equal value which may be needed. An office wishing further details on this program should call the Government Printing Office (202) 512-1808. The Government Printing Office also provides access on the Internet to a wide variety of government publications, from both the legislative and executive branches of government, at its World Wide Web site (http://www.access.gpo.gov). WHAT TO DO WHEN A PUBLICATION IS OUT OF PRINT AND UNAVAILABLE Occasionally a needed publication is no longer available at either the executive or independent agency or the Government Printing Office. A few suggestions for such cases: · If the title is required for office use by the Member or his/her staff, it can be borrowed from the Library of Congress, if it is available, for a limited period of time. A staff member with loan privileges may request the publication by telephoning ext. 7-5445. CRS-5 · If the publication is needed for a constituent, he or she can be referred to the nearest U.S. Government depository library. This will be one of more than 1,300 libraries throughout the country in which certain government publications are preserved and made available for public use. A listing of these depository libraries appears in Federal Depository Libraries Directory (1996) and may be obtained by calling Library Programs Services (GPO) at (202) 512-1119. While many such libraries will have copies of the Congressional Record and the serial documents of the Congress, there will be occasions when the title requested is not a depository item. To determine whether a needed publication is likely to be available, the office may wish to call (202) 512-1119 and ask about its depository status. In addition, Members of Congress can obtain information concerning the designation of libraries as federal depositories by calling (202) 512-1119. Designation Handbook for Federal Depository Libraries is available upon request. · If the requesting constituent appears to be a scholar engaged in serious research, the office may wish to recommend pursuing the publication through an interlibrary loan. To secure such service the constituent should ask a local librarian to borrow the publication either from the nearest depository library (if there is none available in the community), from the state library, or through the extension service of the state college or university. If the title is of such a specialized nature that it cannot be secured from one of these, the local librarian can request "location information" from the nearest regional union catalog center. This will identify the most convenient copy to borrow. THE INTERNET AS A SOURCE FOR EXECUTIVE OR INDEPENDENT AGENCY PUBLICATIONS The publications of executive branch departments and other government agencies are becoming increasingly available on the Internet as these agencies have created their own home pages on the World Wide Web (WWW). Because these sources are multiplying rapidly as more and more government agencies "come online," this report reflects what is available on the Internet at the time of this writing. The Internet is a "global network" used for research collaboration, remote database access, and resource sharing. Many government agencies now make the full text of their documents available on the Internet before the printed text is obtainable from the agency or through GPO. Selected Internet addresses, provided by the agencies or obtained from other sources, are included in the listings for the specific agencies. Sources for Internet Links to Executive and Independent Agencies The following World Wide Web sites provide additional access to a large number of federal government Internet home pages. These are excellent sources CRS-6 for the most current listing of WWW sites, including any Internet WWW home pages added since the publication of this report. CRS-7 Federal Web Locator http://www.law.vill.edu/Fed-Agency As stated on its home page, "the Federal Web Locator is a service provided by the Villanova Center for Information Law and Policy and is intended to be the one stop shopping point for federal government information on the World Wide Web." This service provides a large number of links to various federal government home pages. Library of Congress http://lcweb.loc.gov/global/executive/fed.html "Official Federal Government Web Sites" is the title of a "Resource Internet Page" on the Library of Congress Home Page; it provides numerous links to executive branch and independent agency World Wide Web sites, with direct access to many of the subsidiary agency publications. White House http://www.whitehouse.gov/WH/html/handbook.html The White House Home Page contains an "Interactive Citizens’ Handbook," which provides links to many federal government Web sites. Computer Access and Support Computer terminals which provide immediate access to the Internet are available for staff use in the CRS reference centers in the Rayburn and the Russell Office Buildings. The La Follette Congressional Reading Room in the Madison Building also has computers for use by congressional staff. Both the House and Senate provide computer support to congressional offices. For Members, committees, and staff of the House, House Information Resources (HIR) provides a comprehensive group of information and research sources especially designed for Members, committees, and staff. For Senators, committees, and staff, the Senate Computer Center provides a comprehensive group of information and research sources. Training classes and a user assistance hotline for Senate staff are available.
