NOTE that the Library ceased receiving new tangible government documents in Spring, 2016, and withdrew large numbers of tangible documents during the previous year.
Government CDs and DVDs are, for the most part, kept in the office and may be requested by Library patrons at the Circulation Counter. NOTE: this listing does not include CDs/DVDs that are included in pockets or otherwise attached to printed documents.
They may be checked out by St. Mary's community members for 7 days. If you are not affiliated with St. Mary's and want to use a government CD, please contact the Government Information Librarian (see box on the right) or a Research Librarian (see box below) to make special arrangements to use the CD in the Library or borrow it on interlibrary loan.
Some government CDs/DVDs are shelved with printed items in the documents stacks on the Library's 2nd Floor, and this is noted in the listings on these pages.
In recent years, the Library has received fewer and fewer CDs/DVDs, as most agencies are using the web to distribute information products. Consult the Library's Online Catalog, or other government LibGuides, if you need information that used to be available on disks.
The library at the University of Indiana, Bloomington, in partnership with the Government Publishing Office and the Committee on Institutional Cooperation, offers online versions of information on CDs distributed to depository libraries.
