Government Documents

Government Documents cover a broad range of topics including criminal justice; laws and regulations; congressional hearings; Supreme Court Opinions; and economic, demographic and agricultural statistics. You can access our Government Documents Collection serveral ways: through the Catalog (with links to GPO Access); the printed Monthly Catalog housed in the Index Area; selected titles on CD-ROM; and the Catalog of Government Publication via GPO Access. These items are classified by the Superintendent of Documents Classification Scheme and must be retrieved using that call number. The library's Government Documents Department is located on the Lower Level of the library.
