​Government Information

​Shafer Library has been a selective depository for U. S. government documents since 1969.  It has a small selection of documents, in print, located on the first floor and documents on microfiche on the ground floor. These are available to the general public while the library is open.
 
The majority of Federal and state documents are now available on the web. Nearly all of the Basic Collection titles are available in electronic format. In-library users can access these documents through the library's computers.
