MetaLib Federated Search Tool for U.S. Federal Government Information

The Government Printing Office, the official publisher of the American government, has launched MetaLib, a search engine that allows users to search simultaneously in as many as 53 government collections covering government, legislative, technical and scientific information.

In addition to the ability to search all databases at once, the new tool allows for:
  • Searching individual databases using the A-Z Resource List
  • Creating personalized sets of searchable database collections using the A-Z Resource List(i.e picking and choosing combinations of databases to search)
  • Saving configurations and resources to a personalized E-shelf
  • Emailing and/or saving records in various formats (e.g., MARC21, Standard, ProCite)
