Ordering and Policies

Sales Tax Exemption

Since the U.S. Government Bookstore is a Federal Government operation, purchases made on our site are exempt from state and local government sales tax.

Using the Shopping Cart

When a publication is in stock and available for purchase, an Add to Cart button will appear below its description in the search results or below the title of a publication on its "Details" page. When you click on the button, the product information is entered into your Shopping Cart automatically, including title, stock number, price, and quantity. Only items that have an Add to Cart button are available for purchase.

You can change the quantity or remove a publication from your Shopping Cart at any time. Up to 20 items may be ordered at a time. The shopping cart automatically calculates the total of your order as you add to and remove publications.

To find foreign prices, consult the detailed description of individual publications. Also see International Orders.

You can also access your current Shopping Cart at any time to review, change, or finalize your order, by clicking the Cart/Check Out button located at the top of all U.S. Government Bookstore Web pages.

GPO Order Number

Once an item has been added to the shopping cart, it is automatically assigned a GPO order number (e.g. GPO Order No: 200111270000). This number should be used as a point of reference when inquiring about the status of an online order.

No discount is allowed for shipments delivered to a third party unless the quantity of a single title is equal to or greater than one hundred copies.

Searching and Browsing

U.S. Government Online Bookstore

The U.S. Government Bookstore allows users to search for and order Government information products currently available from the Information Dissemination area of the U.S. Government Publishing Office. Users can also find information about forthcoming material, as well as titles that have been recently superseded or have gone out of print. Available media include printed items, CD-ROMs, diskettes, microfiche, videotapes, and more. The U.S. Government Online Bookstore is updated daily.

There are two ways to search the U.S. Government Bookstore:

Simple Search - The Simple Search will result in a list of all publications available to buy on the Online Bookstore.

The Simple Search box is the more general search; this search box appears on the main page of the bookstore as well as at the top of all bookstore pages. Search terms for a simple search can be a subject or phrase, author, editor, organization, title, series, stock number, date/year, or format (such as CD-ROM, diskette, microfiche, poster, videotape, etc.).

Advanced Search - The Advanced Search will result in a list of all publications available to buy as well as publications that have been superseded or have gone out of print on the Online Bookstore.

An Advanced Search uses fields that allow the user to make a search more specific by limiting the results to pre-selected elements, such as stock number, title, author, and key phrase. The Advanced Search feature is located on the Searching page.

Searching the U.S. Government Bookstore

Boolean Operators: Boolean operators are connectors that help to narrow your search. There are three Boolean operators: +(and), OR, and -(not). The default Boolean operator is OR.

+ (and)  This tells the Bookstore that all search results must contain the searched words or phrase. To designate an AND operator, the search word or phrase should be preceded by a plus (+) sign.
    (For example, to list only publications that contain both the words Education and Department, you would search for: +Education +Department)

OR  This tells the Bookstore that search results can contain all words or only individual words in a phrase that were searched. This is the default search mode in the Bookstore.
    (For example, a search containing the words Environmental Protection Agency will return results that contain all three words, as well as results that contain only Agency, Environmental, or Protection. Results with all three words will be highest on the list of the results.)

- (not)  This tells the Bookstore that all search results must contain one word but not another. To designate a NOT operator, the search word or phrase should be preceded by a minus (-) sign.
    (For example, if you only want results that contain the word Education but not the word Department, you would search for: Education -Department.)

Quotation Marks: When searching the U.S. Government Bookstore, exact phrases should be enclosed in quotation marks. For example, if you are searching for a specific title of a publication, you would enclose that title in quotation marks for more precise search results.
(For example, 9/11 Commission Report would be searched as "9/11 Commission Report".)

Truncation: An asterisk (*) can be used to designate a wild card within a word. This wild card will then match any characters. A wild card can appear anywhere in a search word except the first character. Wild cards can not be used inside of a search phrase.
(For example, a search for legislat* will retrieve results with which contain the words legislation, legislature, legislative, etc.)

Results List

Each search you conduct in the U.S. Government Bookstore will result in a list of publications that are arranged based on how well they match the words you searched. The maximum number publications listed on your results page is 40. If your search results in more than 40 matches, you will find additional pages of results listed at the bottom of the page you are looking at.

For more information on a publication, click on it's title to view a detailed description. Only titles with an Add to Cart button are available for purchase. To add a publication to your shopping cart, click the Add to Cart button.

Browse by Subject

eBook Readers and Digital File Formats

eBook files come in a variety of formats for use on various tablets and ereader devices and software. The information below is provided as guidance only, so be sure to choose the correct format for your device and eBook reading software program and follow the instructions for your specific device or software.

SIDE-LOADING: To read an eBook file from the U.S. Government Bookstore website on a dedicated eReader like a Kindle, Nook or Sony eReader, or on a tablet such as an Apple iPad, Kindle Fire, or Samsung Galaxy, users will need to manually "sideload" or copy the downloaded file to their eReader or mobile device.


What is the EPUB Format?

  1. EPUB (short for electronic publication) is a free and open eBook standard by the International Digital Publishing Forum (IDPF) that is based on XHTML, XML and CSS.  EPUB eBook files have the extension EPUB.
  2. EPUB is designed for reflowable content, meaning that an EPUB reader can optimize text for a particular display device. EPUB also supports fixed-layout content. The format is intended as a single format that publishers and conversion houses can use in-house, as well as for distribution and sale. It is the most popular eBook format as it can be used on multiple devices.

What is the MOBI Format?

  1. MOBI format was invented by French company MobiPocket as an ebook format for their MobiPocket Reader application. The company was bought by Amazon and used in Amazon's Kindle eBook reader devices.  MOBI files usually have .mobi extension. Because the format was originally designed for Palm Pilot PDAs, they can also have .prc or .pdb extension.
  2. Amazon's eBooks sometimes have an .AZW extension which is an earlier version of the MOBI file format. But Amazon added DRM (Digital Rights Management) to their version of the MOBI format, which means that AZW eBooks purchased directly from Amazon can ONLY be read by Amazon's Kindle software or devices.

However, MOBI format files can be read on Kindles and any other MOBI-capable devices and software.

What is PDF format?

  1. Invented by Adobe Systems in 1993, Portable Document Format (PDF) is now an open standard for electronic document exchange maintained by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO).
  2. When you convert documents, forms, graphics, and web pages to PDF, they look just like they would if printed. But unlike plain printed documents, enhanced PDF files can contain clickable links and buttons, form fields, video, and audio — as well as logic to help automate routine business processes.
  3. When you share a PDF file, virtually anyone can read it using the free Adobe Reader® computer software or the free Adobe Reader® mobile app.
