Online Government Documents Citation Guides

From the University of North Texas citation guide: "Government documents often present special problems in creating citations. For example, a government document may not have a personal author, or the publication date or title may not be clear....If you are writing for a class or for publication, your instructor or publisher is always the final authority to consult for determining which general style to use, as well as for determining the proper format for a specific citation."
