UW-Madison just created a guide to online federal government information resources during the shutdown. The guide is at http://researchguides.library.wisc.edu/govshutdown . A few of the “workaround” sites listed there are available only in UW-Madison Libraries or remotely to UW-Madison students, faculty, and staff, but most sites are free to all.
Feel free to link to the site, or borrow parts of it!
