Depository Library Information
The Federal Depository Library Program (FDLP) was established by Congress to ensure that the American public has access to its Government's information. Since 1813, depository libraries have safeguarded the public's right to know by collecting, organizing, maintaining, preserving, and assisting users with information from the Federal Government. The FDLP provides Government information at no cost to designated depository libraries throughout the country and territories. These depository libraries, in turn, provide local, no-fee access to Government information in an impartial environment with professional assistance.
The Law Library became a selective depository for U.S. government documents in 1977. The following titles are available in print format at the library.
- United States Code (online)
- Code of Federal Regulations (online)
- Federal Register (online)
- United States Reports (online) & Slip Opinions (online)
- Statutes at Large (online) and Slip Laws (online)
