Government Documents

The Federal Depository Library Program (44 USC 19) provides for the establishment and maintenance of depository libraries and the distribution of government documents to those libraries for use by the public.  As a participant in this program, Memorial Library offers the public free access to all depository documents, including print, microform and electronic formats. Users may be asked to register or provide identification at the Berry College main gate, but no information that connects use of particular depository documents with individuals is collected.

For additional assistance with locating federal documents in print or online, ask for the reference librarian on duty. For in-depth inquiries requiring extensive use of federal documents, please e-mail or call Maureen Morgan, Serials & Documents Librarian, (706) 233-4094.
