Government Information

Government Information Research in the UCLA Library

Welcome to the UCLA Government Information research guide!

Government documents are usually categorized by the level of government which produced them.

  • Federal = The national government of the United States.
  • State = The governments of the 50 states, including California.                                                                          
  • Local = Any level of government below a whole state, such as counties, cities, and school districts.
  • International = International organizations, both global (such as the United Nations) and regional (such as the European Union).
  • Foreign = Individual foreign countries (which may themselves be sub-divided into national, provincial, and municipal government entities).
