Complementary & Alternative Medicine

A University of Lethbridge Library guide to research and resources in Complementary & Alternative Medicine.

Finding Government Documents

Government bodies publish a wealth of information related to health sciences topics. As virtually all government documents are now published in electronic format, you should look for recent government publications online rather than in the Library's physical collections. Older publications, on the other hand, may only be available in print.

To find government documents, search the resources listed on the right. For more information, visit our Government Information guide.

Finding Government Documents in the Catalogue

The Library Catalogue indexes both print and electronic government documents. Use the search box below or our advanced catalogue search page to find government documents through the Library. If you use the advanced search, be sure to limit the material type to "Gov Doc."


For online documents, a link is provided in the catalogue record. Most print materials are located in the Government Documents Collection on Level 9 North of the Library and are arranged according to the CODOC classification system. Some print documents are interspersed through the Main Collection, also on Level 9 of the Library. For more help on finding print materials in the Library, visit our Find Books & E-Books guide.

Custom Google Search

Use the custom Google search box below to search for government publications online. Use the drop down menu to limit your search to Canadian, American, or intergovernmental organization (e.g., UN, EU) documents. Results for Canadian government documents may be further limited to federal, provincial, or municipal websites from the results page.
