GOVERNMENT DOCUMENTS & INFORMATION






Documents at F&M


Franklin & Marshall College has been a selective depository for United States federal documents since 1895. The Federal Depository Library Program is a national network for providing public access to government produced information. The library's mission is to provide government information that supports the college's curriculum and to make this information available to residents of the 16th Congressional District in Pennsylvania. The government documents collection is available to everyone, though it may be necessary to arrange for research assistance. Inquire at the Reference Desk in the Shadek-Fackenthal Library or by phone at 717-291-4217. The library selects approximately 23% of the publications available from the U.S. Government. Strengths of the collection include legislative documents, census publications, statistical reports, and U.S. Geological Survey maps.

Government information can be found in a variety of formats: paper (or print); microfiche; CD-Roms; and web documents on the Internet. Most of the paper collection is housed on the Ground Floor of the Shadek-Fackenthal Library, arranged according to the Superintendent of Documents Classification. Microfiche nd CDs are housed in the Microforms Reading Room on Level One. Scientific publications (primarily from the Departments of Agriculture, Energy, and Interior, as well as the Environmental Protection Agency and NASA) are housed in the Martin Library of the Sciences. Reference assistance for the documents collection is available in both libraries.

Many federal documents are not contained in the Library Catalog. Indexes and other finding aids must be used to identify and locate these publications. A good place to begin is the Catalog of U.S. Government Publications.
