The U.S. Government Publishing Office (GPO) is responsible for the production and distribution of information for all three branches of the federal government. It disseminates that information through online platforms and through designated Federal Depository Libraries across the country. Congressional reports, U.S. Court opinions, research done under government contract, books and articles spanning a variety of topics are all examples of government documents. The GPO's Federal Digital System (FDsys) allows for free online access to publications from all three branches of government.
