The largest collection of government documents at the UO, both in print and electronic, comes from the United States Government, the largest publisher in the world. As part of its publishing program, the U.S. Government Publishing Office (GPO) through the Federal Depository Library Program (FDLP) distributes certain classes of Government documents free of cost to designated libraries throughout the United States and its territories. These libraries are known as Federal depository libraries. The UO is a Federal and Oregon State depository, and also a depository for some IGOs.
The library's government collections contain publications from the governments of the United States, Canada, Great Britain, the State of Oregon, and cities and counties in Oregon. Also included are official records of international organizations such as the United Nations and the European Union. As much government information is available digitally now, we provide assistance in locating government and IGO information on the Internet.
