Government Documents Collection
Library is a member of the Federal Depository Library Program.
We receive documents published by the federal government and make
them available to the public whenever the library is open.
We collect only a small
percentage of the documents published by the government every year. The
documents we receive come in many formats and are part of many different
collections within the library: reference, periodicals, microforms,
general collection, documents, etc. The main documents collection is on
the south end of the second floor. Our documents can be found by searching
the library catalog by keyword, title, subject, author, or SuDoc (Superintendent
of Documents) classification number, which is based on the agency issuing the
Most documents can be checked
out by faculty, staff, students, designated guests, and community borrowers.
For those materials that cannot be checked out, copies can be made at a cost of
$0.10 per page. An ever-growing number of government documents are also
freely available on the Web.
