Guide to Finding U.S. Government Documents in the Pentagon Library

The Pentagon Library has a large collection of defense related U.S. government documents that may be digital documents from online databases such as the subscription LexisNexis Congressional Publications on the library intranet or the free Federal Digital System (FDSys) at the Government Printing Office, paper copies received through the Federal Depository Library Program and other sources, or microfiche and microfilm. Some of the titles published by the federal government have call numbers and are shelved in the general collection. These are usually books and can be found by searching the library catalog. An example is The War Against Japan published by the U.S. Army Center of Military History, D767 .H85 2006. This guide is to help you find these other government documents in the Pentagon Library:
