Government Documents on Midwestern U.S. History

 

U.S. Government publications and state government publications are important sources for studying the development of Midwestern U.S. History from the 1787 Northwest Ordinance to the present.
Purdue Libraries have many government publications on the historical development and evolution of the midwest. This guide will consider the following states: Ohio, Indiana, Michigan, Wisconsin, Illinois, Missouri, Iowa, and Minnesota as being part of the midwest. These publications will primarily include U.S. Government publications and Indiana State publications. Paper copies of these resources are available in the HSSE Library and in the Undergraduate Library's HIKS Repository. Many recent U.S. Government publications are in the Library Catalog but many historical government publications are not in the Library Catalog.. Locating these resources requires using a number of print indexes which listed below.

The principal index for U.S. Government Publications is Monthly Catalog of U.S. Government Publications HSSE REF & Periodicals 016.353 Un36. This indexes all U.S. Government publications distributed to federal depository libraries through the Federal Depository Library Program administered by the U.S. Government Printing Office. An online version of this index from 1994-present is accessible here Additional indexes to historical U.S. documents include:

Cumulative Title Index to U.S. Public Documents 1789-1976 HSSE REF 016.353 C913
