About Sudoc

Federal documents are arranged by the U.S. Superintendent of Documents (SuDocs) Classification System based on the issuing government agency.

For example the SuDocs number for the Department of Justice begins with "J" and "ED" identifies documents from the Department of Education.

A more detailed guide to Sudoc can be found here and an extensive lists of sudoc numbers and agencies can be found here.
