About Government Documents
We are a Federal Depository Library.
The Depository Library system was established to provide the general public with the means of examining annual reports, statistics, research studies and other materials produced by federal agencies. As the Federal Government has grown and developed, so has the Depository Library system.
Of the Depository Libraries in the United States, there are 51 are Regional Depository Libraries which receive all publications available for distribution through the U.S. Government Printing Office. The remaining libraries choose only those categories of documents which best develop their collections and serve their public.
When a library is designated a Federal Depository, it becomes part of a national network. This network helps United States citizens understand their government and its activities by making available publications issued by various government agencies.
