Q: Where can I find the annual report of a U.S. federal government agency?
Answered by: Ned Pocengal
- Online through the agency's web site
- Orbis, the Yale Library catalog
- Back to late 1990s: Search the Internet Archive's Wayback Machine with the URL of the agency (e.g., "www.ins.gov").
- For reports not found in Orbis, search ProQuest Statistical Insight. Very recent reports will be available in PDF; older reports will be on microfiche and can be requested from the Government Documents & Information Center. Please include the "Record Number," found in the description of the report on ProQuest Statistical, with your request (e.g., Record Number: ASI 2008 2464-3).
- 19th century, some early 20th century: Search U.S. Congressional Serial Set; some executive branch agency annual reports were printed in Congressional editions and are included in the Serial Set.
- Monthly Catalog of U.S. Government Publications, 1895-1976
Citations found in this catalog can then be searched in Orbis, ProQuest Statistical, or the U.S. Congressional Serial Set to find hard copy or digital copy.
Note: Reports of subagencies (bureaus, divisions, etc.) may be included in the annual report of the parent agency (e.g. reports of the Division of Pomology may be published in the annual reports of the Department of Agriculture).
