Government Information Collection

The Library Building currently has restricted access. The collections and services in this location can be requested through OneSearch. Electronic government publications are accessible through OneSearch. For more information, please see our Library Resources and Services Available During Fall guide, or contact the Library using our 24/7 Ask a Librarian service.

The J. Paul Leonard Library is one of 1300 Federal depository libraries that provide access to government information. We select documents from the Government Printing Office (GPO) and also collect State of California documents and international documents from the United Nations. 

Using the Collection

Some government documents are available on the 3rd Floor, but most of our print documents are in storage in our Library Retrieval and Storage facility and need to be requested through OneSearch. A large amount of government information is also available online through various Library databases. For off-campus access, log in with your University ID and password. To refine your results in OneSearch, check Government Documents under the Format menu. To check out materials take items to Book Checkout & Pickup Desk on the 1st floor. Let us know if you need help, as cataloguing our print document collection is ongoing.
