Government documents are materials published by the federal government at government expense. They include Congressional hearings, departmental publications, maps, periodicals, labor statistics, the U.S. Census information, and much more. This library receives about 12% of all federal documents published.

Most documents in print are available on the Upper Level of the Library. Documents on CD and DVD-ROM are also located on the Upper Level in the Government Documents multimedia cabinet. Please consult a librarian at the Reference Desk for assistance. Many documents are freely accessible online.
