Government Documents: Collections & Access
The University Library has been a selective depository library for United States government publications since 1965. This means that the library receives official documents from agencies in all branches of the federal government. Examples include hearings of the House and Senate; reports from the Environmental Protection Agency; statistical publications from the Bureau of the Census and the Department of Labor.
The Government Document Collections (paper and electronic) are all available for use by the university community and the general public. Borrowing policies for documents are the same as those for our other materials.
The collection is merged within the general collection. Topographic maps and nautical charts are shelved on the third floor.
Documents can be found using the Primo Library Search system.
The U.S. Government Publishing Office (GPO) makes federal publications available over the FEDsys Federal Digital System. The GPO FEDsys provides links to the Federal Register, Congressional Record, and bills before Congress, for example.
Provides organized links to federal, state and local government sites.
