What is a Government Document?

Government documents is a catchall phrase for materials produced by government agencies. The US Government puts out information on a wide variety of topics, everything from pet care to technical research, folk music to crime statistics. Government documents also take on a variety of formats. Books, pamphlets, posters, periodicals, and online databases are all government documents if they are produced by a government agency.

Government agencies that produced the documents in this display are:
      • Department of the Army
      • Department of the Interior
      • Department of the Treasury
      • Department of War (an agency that no longer exists)
      • Library of Congress
      • Smithsonian Institute
      • United States George Washington Bicentennial Commission

Middleton Library is a Regional Depository and receives copies of all government documents issued through the Government Printing Office's Federal Depository Library Program. The Government Documents/Microform Department is located in the basement of Middleton Library, Room 53.
