Accurate, Focused Research on Law, Technology and Knowledge Discovery Since 2002


WASHINGTON – “The U.S. Government Publishing Office (GPO) achieved the milestone of nine billion retrievals of Government information since the agency started publishing information online in 1994. Today, govinfo, as the online, trusted digital repository is known, serves as the one-stop site for authentic, published Government information. GPO’s site,, which has been touted as the “Google for Government Documents,” gives the public access to Presidential addresses, Congressional debates dating back to 1873, Federal regulations, Federal court opinions, maps of explorations of the West, and much more.

Government information isn’t useful unless it is accessible. By providing digital access to Government information all the way back to the 19th century, we have helped people find the information they were looking for nine billion times,” said GPO Director Hugh Nathanial Halpern. “This milestone demonstrates our team’s commitment to making historical and modern documents available digitally on govinfo. Whether it’s on a mobile device or traditional print on paper, GPO has always been committed to Keeping America Informed on the workings of our democracy for the last 160 years. Congratulations to our GPO team and Federal partners!”…
