Access to U.S. Government Resources during the shutdown

So many libraries and organizations such as the Congressional Research Service  have created amazing resources and LibGuides during the Government shutdown.  Here are a few in case you’re needing information that is currently unavailable:

The Congressional Research Service (CRS) has produced the following reports:

Government Shutdown: Operations of the Department of Defense During a Lapse in Appropriations

Shutdown of the Federal Government: Causes, Processes, and Effects

The Debt Limit: History and Recent Increases

Federal Funding Gaps: A Brief Overview

Reaching the Debt Limit: Background and Potential Effects on Government Operations

New York University has created an excellent LibGuide documenting alternative resources, as has UC San Diego, and Northwestern University. The Way Back Machine  is also proving helpful during this period.  Here is a snapshot of what the government dept. and agency websites look  like under the shutdown.
