In this episode Government Documents Specialist Lindsay O'Neill talks with Government Information Librarian Dan Stanton about The Federal Depository and State Documents Collections at the ASU Libraries.
For over 200 years the United States makes government information available to its citizens through the Federal Depository Library Program, a network of over 1200 libraries. Arizona State University has been a depository library since 1944, and also has publications from the Arizona State Government, local entities, and the United Nations.
Dan and Lindsay share treasures from this collection: first they explore original pages from the War of the Rebellion (The American Civil War), Arizona Highways (the first full color magazine), NASA technical reports, Native American information, and urban development in Arizona. The collection encompasses all types of materials from traditional reports, stories of discovery, and even includes medical imagery (which as Dan says, is not for the squeamish).
Access all this information from one place at ASU Libraries Government Documents. Visit us, meet Dan and Lindsay in person and get personal service for your research needs.
Location and Hours: Open Monday through Friday 9am to 5pm on the 3rd floor of the Hayden Library ASU Tempe campus.
