About this Guide
This guide lists the major government documents series and sets in Rod Library, many of which go back to the 1800's or earlier. Most of the material listed here is in UNISTAR but some of it is not. Check the page Indexes to Government Publications in this guide to find sources that will help you locate what you need. In some instances, multiple volumes/issues of a publication (covering individual topics) were bound together with one UNISTAR entry. If you search UNISTAR for a document and do not find it, try a title search for the name of the series to which it belongs. Example: Annual Report of the Bureau of Ethnology to the Secretary of the Smithsonian Institution. Individual titles within the bound volumes of this publication may only be identified by the indexes on the Indexes to Government Publications page. There are many additional single volumes throughout the government documents collection and these may be identified by using UNISTAR.
If you have trouble locating a title, please be sure to ask a librarian.
