The alpha release of the Gov Docs Registry became publicly available about six weeks ago. There are currently about 550,000 items in the registry with about 544,000 available full text.
The Registry is intended to include item-level metadata for the comprehensive corpus of U.S. federal documents produced from 1789 to the present.
This is a work in progress and we know that there are things that still need to be worked on, which means that there may be downtime while system work continues.
- Enumeration and chronology data is inconsistent.
- Inclusion of metadata for non-US federal government documents. Please report if found
- SuDoc search only retrieves records that include a SuDoc number – many of these records only have LC call numbers
