Government Documents

General Information

The Government Documents Department is located on the Main Floor on the Main Floor of the J.D. Boyd Library. The documents are housed in open stacks and available to patrons during all hours that the library is open. Patrons needing assistance after 5:00 p.m. and on weekends should check with the Reference Librarian on duty at the Reference Desk on the Main Floor.

The J.D. Boyd Library has served as a depository in the Second Congressional District since 1970. The Documents Department is responsible for maintaining a representative collection of Federal and State Documents. We try to provide through our depository system the most current information for our users. We take into consideration the offerings of our University curriculum, as well as, the needs of the surrounding communities in selecting items to be added to our collection. Children and youth under the age of fourteen, who need access to government publications, should first contact the documents librarian for assistance by phone or email. Be advised that all children and youth must be accompanied by an adult.
