PITTCat+ is the gateway searching tool for all of the materials owned by the University Library system (ULS), including government documents.
Information produced by federal agencies and issued through the Government Publishing Office offers a wealth of information on numerous topics.
The major strengths of Pitt's collections includes the following topics:
The vast majority of new government documents are "born digital" and are therefore not acquired in print format by Pitt. Our Decennial Census collection is located on the ground floor of Hillman Library. The remainder of our print government documents collection is housed in the library's off-site storage facility and can be recalled using the "Get-It" feature within PITTCat.
Most publications published by the Government Publishing Office (GPO) prior to 1976 are not available in PITTCat+ or the online version of the Catalog of U.S. Government Publications. To find documents published before 1976, you may want to consult the variety of indexes listed below.
