The print edition of the Monthly Catalog of United States Government Publications began in 1895 and ended in 2004.
It is the oldest continuously published catalog of U. S. government publications. The Monthly Catalog includes both Congressional and government agency publications.
While it was a sales catalog, it can be used to find that certain older documents were published.
When a similar publication (the Documents Catalog) was discontinued, the following supplements to the Monthly Catalog were published. They filled in a gap from 1940 to 1947. Declassified publications were included.
The Monthly Catalog indexes are located near the “Shelflist” card catalog.
Entries for items printed after September, 1947 show entry/item numbers, such as this example: (62)24093:
Entries for items printed before September, 1947 show page numbers, such as this example: (26)638:
Tip: An entry in the Subject Index is informational—it is NOT the same as the title of the item in the Monthly Catalog
Warning: sometimes there are typos in the Cumulative Subject Index!
