Government Publishing Office - Federal Depository Library Program


Key Resources

The UWM Libraries is a congressionally designated depository for United States government documents. Public access to the government documents collection is guaranteed by public law. (Title 44 United States Code)

The UWM Libraries is a "60% selective" U.S. Federal Depository Library, therefore not all publications available through the Government Publications Office are guaranteed to be available (please ask for assistance if you are not finding what you need!). Federal government resources are received in various formats, including paper, microfiche, CD-ROM, DVD, and via the Internet. These resources are found in various locations in the Golda Meir Library building or online, depending on format and subject.
