Government Documents

The St. Thomas University Library is a congressionally designated depository for U.S. government documents. Public access to the government documents collection is guaranteed by public law (Title 44 United States Code).

St. Thomas University has been a United States Government Depository Library since 1966. The library is one of 1400 Federal Depository Libraries in the U.S. and one of only nine in Southeast Florida. This collection is located on the first floor of the Library, adjacent to the Reference Collection.

The Government Documents Collection covers a vast array of subjects including Business & Trade, Education, Health, Environmental Studies, Labor, Justice, and Foreign Affairs. The collection also includes Congressional Records and Hearings, publications of the Library of Congress, and maps of all countries.  This collection is open to the public and may be accessed through our Library Catalog.

Material processed in Federal Depositories since January of 1994 can be found via the Catalog of U.S. Government Publications, a website maintained by the Government Printing Office (GPO) .
