What are Government Documents?

A government document is a publication created by a government. The United States government is required to provide records of its proceedings to the people.

A government document may be published one time or periodically.  It may be a book, article, form, pamphlet, brochure, flyer, Web site, electronic database, photograph, CD, DVD, videotape, microfilm, or microfiche.  All government entities produce government documents, including towns, cities, counties, states, countries, and intergovernmental agencies.
