Federal government shutdown may affect access to government documents and resources.
The Federal Government is shut down due to a funding lapse. The Catalog of U.S. Government Publications (CGP) (and its related resources), FDLP.gov, FDLP LibGuides, Ben’s Guide to the U.S. Government, and others available through fdlp.gov are not being updated with new information, but access to these sites will be available. PURLs in the CGP will continue to link to digital content available on govinfo.gov and other servers under the control of GPO and at official partner sites. Links resolving to agency websites may not work depending on the furlough plans at each agency.1
The length of the shutdown is not known. For questions regarding access to government documents and resources, contact Collections Coordinator and Professor Ed Goedeken.
