The Government Publications Office (GPO) has launched a new federated search engine that searches multiple U.S. Federal government databases all at the same time. The new search engine is called MetaLib and retrieves reports, articles, and other citations and provides direct links to resources that are available online. The search engine allows users to conduct both basic, and advanced searches and includes information from government agencies ranging from the EPA to the US Army War College library (For a full list of databases search, an A to Z Resource list is included). New databases are continually added to the search engine.

When looking for information contained on a government website, try out MetaLib as an alternative to Google for a more precise, targeted search.
