How do I obtain NCES publications and products?

Another way to obtain publications, CD-ROMs, and other data products is through The Education Publication Center (ED Pubs). Until supplies are exhausted, copies of a publication or CD-ROM may be obtained at no cost from Ed Pubs. To contact ED Pubs, call their toll-free phone number at 877-4-ED-PUBS (877-433-7827), TTY/TDD at 877-576-7734; fax them at 703-605-6794; or send them a written request at:

In addition to ED Pubs, other sources for printed NCES publications and CD-ROMs include:
Ordering Multiple Copies/Older Publications
To obtain more than one copy of a publication or if ED Pubs' supplies have been exhausted, additional copies may be purchased from the U.S. Government Printing Office (GPO) Online Bookstore. To order a publication from the Bookstore, you must have the GPO number, which should resemble this example: GPO #065-000-00871-8.

Be sure to check availability because not all NCES publications may be obtained from the Bookstore.
