Government Resources: Government Periodicals (University of Louisville William F. Ekstrom Library) An extensive, alphabetical list of Federal periodicals.

U.S. Government Information: Weekly Roundup (University of California, San Diego Geisel Library) The guide "provides current awareness of federal government reports and activities. The page will be updated weekly to provide links to important, newsworthy, or interesting material published during the previous week. The goal is to keep the links to a manageable number for readers, not to be a comprehensive listing. All links are captured in the Internet Archive if possible, and a list of earlier roundups is available."

The program includes Centers of Excellence, depositories which have committed to developing and providing service for a specific Federal agency, format, or subject area.
