The UW Law Library is a federal depository library serving the university community and the general public. This is a selective list of major document titles or series currently received by the library.
This list is intended as a convenient finding aid for the most asked-for documents. All U.S. government
publications distributed since mid-1976 are included in the Library Catalog
and should be available in at least one campus library. Older
publications can be located by using the United States Monthly
Catalog of Government Publications (Ref Z 1223 A18).
Most call numbers are Superintendent of Documents classification numbers. All call numbers listed in the guide may be clicked in your web browser to find their location on the UW Law Library floor maps.
Some government documents are available online through the Internet. If a document is available online, a link is provided. The amount of government information at these sites depends on what the agency has decided to make available. Because of this, some links may not contain the specific government document you are looking for. If a document, or category of documents, e.g. RULES, REGULATIONS, AND INSTRUCTIONS, is available online, the information posted may not correspond exactly with the actual print source. Some agencies also require third party software to view their documents, such as Adobe Acrobat. Such restrictions governing the access of these documents are detailed on each individual agency's web site.
If you cannot find the document you want listed in this guide or in the Library Catalog, please consult a reference librarian (608-262-3394) or the Documents Assistant (5th Floor, Room 5334; 262-2843).
