Library Services: Government Documents

MSUM's Library is a selective depository for the 7th Minnesota Congressional District. As a Federal Depository Library, we provide free access to and reference service for publications issued by the federal government. We receive 39% of the publications distributed by the U.S. Government Publishing Office (GPO)

A stylized GPO logo.The United States government issues a vast number of publications that reflect on almost all aspects of our daily lives; the Library selects those publications of most use to our patrons. Subject areas that are well-represented include Census and demographics; crime and criminal justice; education; geography and geology; health; history; labor; and legislation. Government publications come in various formats including print volumes, microfiche, maps, CD-ROM, and online.

MSUM's government publications are located on the second floor of the Library. Location numbers for these documents may be found using the Library's online catalog.
