Government Documents


 Federal Depository Library Program 

The law library is a selective depository of publications distributed by the United States Government as part of the Federal Depository Library Program. Materials are selected that support the general collection priorities of the library and that meet the government information needs of our primary clientele, based on the FDLP's "Suggested Core Collection for Law Libraries."

The library maintains a mostly current, 5-year collection with a few retrospective holdings. Most government documents are shelved in the compact shelving, with some heavily-used titles integrated into the library's general collection. Access to the library's holdings is provided through the online catalog and, when applicable, links are included to the electronic version of the titles.
