Until then, for publications issued before 1976, a printed Monthly Catalog of U. S. Government Publications, should be consulted. This publication, CGP's predecessor, is available at any Federal Depository Library. To locate the depository nearest you, use GPO's Locate Libraries service at: http://catalog.gpo.gov/fdlpdir/public.jsp .   The CGP provides Basic, Advanced, and Expert search options.
