USGPO Information

Good reference publications can be obtained from a local USGPO bookstore (like Denver) or from the USGPO in Washington. They pay shipping with no sales taxes.

The US Government has a good reputation of providing reprints to the general public of many very good documents. Many US Government publications (including NASA History Series) are available for sale (to those who are patient) at the following address:

The US Government Printing Office is part of the US Government General Services Administration. Most US Government publications are listed in a "Subject Bibliography" pamphlet, and all subject bibliographies are listed in a "Subject Bibliography Index." The subject bibliographies pertinent to this bibliography are listed below. These pamphlets are free; call and request the following:

  • SB-599 Subject Bibliography Index
  • SB-222 NASA Educational Publications
  • SB-257 NASA Scientific and Technical Publications
  • SB-297 Space Exploration
  • Call your local US Government federal center bookstore (see the "blue" pages in a US phone book). There are about two dozen US Government bookstores in the United States (two are listed below). They might have a few current and out of print books on their shelves. Most of these books are inexpensive. They will take phone orders and charge to Visa/MC (and they pay shipping).
