From exploring outer space, to developing the technology that would become the World Wide Web, to upholding and maintaining standards for the fuel we put into our cars and our bodies, and to helping creators protect their creations, science and technology have long been part of the government's purview. This guide is intended to help researchers uncover data, statistics, congressional hearings, reports, conference proceedings, and many sources besides to bring government information into their scholarship, and provide citizens with access to some of the many free science and technology resources the government makes available.
