First you must identify what's been published by the government. Then you must locate the items in the Tri-College Libraries, online, or through Interlibrary Loan.
Identify what's been published.
First choose a database in which to search, or use a print index.
Use the database or index to find documents on your topic. Many databases will even link directly to the full text of the item. If not, write down the full citation, including the title of the document. If there is a SuDocs call number available, write it down.
Locate the items.
Search for the title of the document in Tripod and write down the call number, or follow the link in the record. If you cannot find an item in Tripod, online, or in the government documents stacks using the SuDocs number, you may request the item through Interlibrary Loan. For additional assistance locating physical items, ask a librarian.
