Looking for Government Documents During the Shutdown?

HeinOnline is a good source for government documents generally and especially now with the government shutdown.  Check out the recent blog post on how to find government documents on HeinOnline:
The government may be closed for all non-essential business, but at HeinOnline we are hard at work to ensure that you have access to the most up-to-date information as well as historical archives for many government publications. Check out what we have in our U.S. Federal Agency Documents, Decisions and Appeals collection. Looking specifically for the Congressional Record or a particular Congressional Hearing? Try our U.S. Congressional Documents collection, where we update the Congressional Record Daily after each day of congressional activity and the Congressional Record itself goes back to inception! Also included in HeinOnline are the United States Reports, Federal Register, Code of Federal Regulations, National Labor Relations Board Decisions, and many more!
The Law Library subscribes to HeinOnline.  Court-affiliated users may find the login and password on the intranet.  Public patrons may access HeinOnline from one of our public access computers.  Ask for assistance at the reference desk.
