Federal Depository Library Program

Federal Depository Library Logo

Rod Library has been part of the Federal Depository Library Program since 1946.  Rod Library receives approximately 35% of government information distributed through the Government Printing Office (GPO).  Our government documents collection is located in the north-central area on the first (bottom) floor of Rod Library.  In addition, there are a significant number of government documents available online. 


Secret Search Tip

Sometimes finding a government document is like looking for a needle in the haystack! What to do?  If you do a Google search and include site:.gov at the end of your search, Google will limit the results to government websites only.  How nifty is that?!
