Or have you ever had a question about the U.S. Federal Government that was so difficult that you didn't even know where to begin? The Federal Information Center can help you. It has specially trained its staff to answer your questions or to direct you to the person with the answer in the U.S. Federal Government.
The National Technical Information Service (NTIS) introduced FedWorld in November 1992 to help with the challenge of accessing U.S. Government Information online. The goal of NTIS FedWorld is to provide a one-stop location for the public to locate, order and have delivered to them, U.S. Government information. Links to U.S. Government W3 servers and other U.S. government information sources are provided. Servers are sorted into subject categories -- the same subject categories that we sort the more than 700 new information products that NTIS receives each week -- so that you can quickly navigate to servers of interest.
