Silly Government Document Titles

Free Government Information (FGI) has compiled a list of silly titles of government documents. The list based on an exchange among GovDoc-L subscribers.

Some of my favorites are (title followed by SuDoc number and link to find in a local library):

  • Fertilizers in a national emergency A 1.6:966 Find in a library

  • The golden age of bathing
    I 29.2: B 32/4 Find in a library

  • State-of-the-art dummy selection. U.S. Dept. of Transportation, National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
    TD 8.2:D 89/5/v.1 Find in a library

  • PMS Blue Book
    HE 20.4001/2: Find in a library

  • Step into action! A guidebook for the above-knee amputee
    FS 2.6/2:ST 4/964 Find in a library

  • Elder abuse, neglect, and exploitation: are we doing enough?
