United States Government Information: Finding Documents & Articles

Federal information for all branches, including the Executive, Legislative, and Judicial arms of the United States government.

At the Library

Use the Library's catalog to find documents and volumes held here at Portland State. PSU is a Depository Library which offers access to millions of print, microfilm, map and digital formats of federal government documents. Didn't find what you were looking for? We have lots of tangible items that may not be in the catalog, or only visible through VIKAT. Before you use Summit to get that document, check VIKAT first or ask a library staff member for faster access to print documents.
