The Catalog of U.S. Government Publications


The Browse Search page is used to browse an alphabetical or numerical list of catalog records within the CGP. The number of bibliographic records associated with each heading is indicated to the left of each result. "Previous Page" and "Next Page" buttons are available to navigate the browse list.  The following indexes are available for a Browse Search:

Title begins Title, Title variations, former Title begins Series/Periodical Title begins
Corporate/Agency Author begins Author begins Conference Proceedings begins
Subject begins LC Subject begins MeSH Subject begins
NASA Subject begins SuDoc Class Number begins LC Call Number begins
Dewey Class Number begins NLM Call Number begins NAL Call Number begins


Wildcard search

For specific subject searches of LC, MeSH, and NASA subject headings, the wildcard character, "?" (question mark) must be used if the exact heading is unknown. For example:

LC heading search of libraries retrieves only records with "libraries" as a subject heading.
LC heading search of libraries? also retrieves records in which "libraries" is only the first element of the subject heading, e.g., "libraries - security measures"
super? = super, superconductor, superintendent, superpower, supervisory, etc.
