Welcome to Government Documents: Quick Info

"Free access to government information for all."

Federal government documents, published by Congress and its agencies, are made available to the public through GPO, the Government Publishing Office and the FDLP, the Federal Depository Library Program. LRC, The Learning Resource Center is a Selective depository that receives items from GPO, maintains the collection in various formats, and makes it accessible to the public. Topics that appeal to everyone include how to get a passport, grow plants, or apply for needed federal assistance. Research historical facts, current hot topics, and anything related to Congress: its proceedings, hearings, laws and regulations. There are many statistics available.  Some  that come from Agriculture, Business and Education are agriculture crop yields, exports and imports, and school crime and violence. 
LRC maintains tangible items while providing links to information through the library catalog and this library guide. We are excited to announce that we are transitioning to a complete digital library. For now, feel free to use the items from our stacks during normal business hours. Librarians are here to assist you, and Inter-library Loan can borrow documents for you from other depositories.
