Slip Opinions: Opinions are first issued as slip opinions. Then, "preliminary prints" of the United States Reports (the official case reporter of U.S. Supreme Court cases) are printed. About 3 years later, once the Court has made its final corrections, the United States Reports bound volumes are printed. The bound print volumes are located on the second floor and are available in PDF on the Supreme Court website.
As of August 9, 2017, the most recent bound volume available on the Court's website is vol. 564, October Term, 2010.
See the Supreme Court's site for Information About Opinions.
Lexis's United States Supreme Court Reports (also called "Lawyer's Edition") is an unofficial reporter but contains the opinions of the Supreme Court of the United States along with headnotes, summaries and annotations.

Digests are annotated indexes to reported cases, providing brief statements of court holdings or facts of the case. They can be used to locate cases by legal topic or by case name. They are updated by pocket parts and advance sheets. Pocket parts are paperback supplements inserted into a volume's back cover; advance sheets are paperback books printed before the bound volumes are ready.
