Government Telecommunication Resources

Provides government telecommunication information and resources.


Telecommunication plays an important part in our lives whenever we listen to music on the radio, watch TV, make a landline telephone call, use a cellular phone, or access the Internet for information, viewing video feeds, or downloading music. The growth of some of these practices and the merging of the technologies disseminating these services has increased the desire of governments to regulate these activities.

Purdue Libraries have many government documents dealing with telecommunication. Examples of subject headings you can use to search the Library Catalog for government documents on telecommunication include:
