This document describes the University Libraries' collecting strategies and practices.
Government documents reference assistance is available to all Library users. Visit or call Snell Library Research Assistance (617.373.2356) or contact Roxanne Palmatier (617.373.4968)
Most government publications are currently received in electronic format. Please call for assistance locating materials online.
Please note that access to federal publications and supporting reference services does not provide access to other University Libraries resources. Visitors with research needs other than or in addition to government publications may wish to apply for a researcher pass.
Members of the public may use federal Internet resources at designated public access workstations in the Library. The Federal Government Information Subject Guide provides a starting point for research. This Federal Depository Library Subject Guide provides links to many Government Printing Office resources, including FDsys and Ben's Guide to U.S. Government for Kids.
