Government Documents on Northeastern U.S. History

 

U.S. Government publications and state government publications are excellent sources for studying the development of U.S. History from the 1600s to the present. Purdue Libraries have many government publications on the historical evolution of the northeastern U.S. For definitional purposes, this guide will cover the following states: West Virginia, Maryland, Delaware, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, Vermont, New Hampshire, and Maine. Many publications in this guide are U.S. Government publications. Paper copies of many of these publications are in the HSSE Library. While some recent U.S. Government publications are in the Library Catalog many historical government documents are not in the Library Catalog and accessing them requires using a number of print indexes which are listed below.

The principal index to 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 U.S. documents include:

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