Our new government documents LibGuide is up and running!

For anyone interested in searching for government published materials, or just information about how the U.S. Government works, Davis Library at the University of Rio Grande & Rio Grande Community College is a great place to start. Since 1966, we have been a member of the United States Federal Depository Library Program (FDLP), which means that we get about 16% of all documents published by the U.S. Government each year. All government document print materials are kept on the 2nd floor stacks, just to the right of the front entrance.

As an additional resource for students, faculty, and the community we have just uploaded a link to our newly created government documents LibGuide, which can be found on the Davis Library homepage under "LibGuides". This resource provides information on finding government resources in print at Davis Library, on our website through RioCat, and online through various government websites. The LibGuide is organized into Executive, Legislative, and Judicial pages, with information on Ohio and international governments as well. Since the majority of government information can now be found online, the plethora of information available can get overwhelming. For this reason, we have also added "Popular Online Resources" and "Getting Started" pages, which are great for anyone doing general searches.

If you are interested in researching materials relating to the U.S. Government, or government organizations, online resources are a great place to start. That being said, the librarians at Davis Library are always willing to help, so feel free to come see us or contact us with any questions!
