Consumer Information Catalog

Federal Citizen Information Center

The Federal Citizen Information Center was established to help federal agencies and departments develop, promote and distribute useful consumer information to the public. One of the ways they do this is by publishing the Consumer Information Catalog four times a year.

Each quarter the catalog highlights the best new consumer publications, and it reviews those already listed in the catalog for accuracy. As you look through the catalog, you’ll see that some publications have prices and others do not. Booklets are offered for free to the consumer if the sponsoring agency pays the printing and distribution costs. Other booklets are printed by the Government Printing Office which sets prices to cover costs. Publication order forms are located in the back of the catalog.

Look for the newest copy of the Consumer Information Catalog at any public service desk at Carnegie-Stout Public Library, or visit the Federal Citizen Information Center website at
