Government Documents

Federal Depository Library Program logoThe Government Documents Collection contains published government information from state, federal and international government bodies. The collection is designated by the Federal Government as a selective depository, which means that we currently receive about 50 percent of all federal publications. The Library of Michigan is a regional depository library. They receive almost all U.S. government publications.

Borrowing Government Documents
