“An educated person is one who has
learned that information almost always

very often false, misleading, fictitious--just dead wrong.”

2.4 – Catalog of U.S.
Government Publications
http://catalog.gpo.gov
2.4 –
Citing U.S.
government
publications can be
very challenging
because no single
standard exists
Example of APA Style Citation (Module 2 – Exercise 2.4)
– for List of References
Ending the school-to-prison pipeline. U.S. Senate, Committee on the
Judiciary. (2014). Hearing, December 12, 2012, Washington: U.S.
Government Printing Office.
– In text citation
(Ending the school-to-prison pipeline, 2014)
*also indicate pp. numbers if doing a direct quotation or paraphrase
2.4 – Citing U.S. Government Publications –
Additional Citation Formatting Examples
 Lawyers and law students often refer to the “Bluebook: A Uniform System of Citation”;
less helpful for those working outside that legal context
 The Debora Cheney reference book (below) is helpful, but the older publication date means
it will be weaker in guidance for government publications located online
In addition to PAF 101’s MOD 2 APA Guide (via Penn State U.) - for more examples of U.S. Government
Publication citation formatting – consider:
 Cheney, D. (2002). The complete guide to citing government information resources. Bethesda, MD:
LexisNexis, Congressional Information Service {J 9.5 G37 2002, Bird Library – 3rd Floor – Government
Reference (does not circulate)}
 Brief Guide to Citing Government Publications. University Libraries, University of Memphis
http://www.memphis.edu/govpub/citweb.php (excellent!...except beware their example for citing
publications with Congress as author (such as a U.S. Senate or U.S. House hearing) strays from the norm.
If citing such hearings, examples on the previous and subsequent slides are preferred!
 Citing Government Publications. Syracuse University Libraries Subject Guide
http://researchguides.library.syr.edu/content.php?pid=43416&sid=320357
2.4 – Citing U.S. Government Publications –
Examples of variation when citing Congress vs. a non-Congressional agency
If a U.S. Senate (or U.S. House) hearing is what you cite, notice that the title of the hearing is
listed first, where normally a personal or organizational author would be listed:
– for List of References
Ending the school-to-prison pipeline. U.S. Senate, Committee on the Judiciary. (2014). Hearing, December
12, 2012, Washington: U.S. Government Printing Office.
– In text citation
(Ending the school-to-prison pipeline, 2014)
*also indicate pp. numbers if doing a direct quotation or paraphrase
By contrast, the example you see at the PAF 101 APA guide via Penn State – for a situation
where one is citing a report from a non-Congressional U.S. government agency - lists the
name of the issuing agency as an organizational author:
– for List of References
U.S. Dept. of Housing and Urban Development. (2000). Breaking the cycle of domestic violence: Know the
facts. Washington, DC: U.S. Government Printing Office.
– In text citation
(U.S. Dept. of Housing and Urban Development, 2000)
*also indicate pp. numbers if doing a direct quotation or paraphrase
2.5– U.S. Census Data
http://www.census.gov
“QuickFacts” will help
you locate data needed
for this exercise.
http://quickfacts.census.gov
When viewing ‘quick
fact’ data for your home
state (& home town,
city or county) – visit
the tab called “USA
QuickFacts” for
national data.
2.5– U.S. Census Data
http://www.census.gov
Within “QuickFacts,” the “Selection Map”
for each state’s counties can help you
locate a comparably sized area to your
home town/city/county.
