Online U.S. Government Information

Research Tip

When searching in Google or another search engine, using a country's specific government domain extension can help you restrict your results to sources from a particular country's government websites.

For example: "climate change" AND site:.gov would show you results from U.S. government websites that mentioned "climate change".
