Government Documents

DU's official U.S. depository status dates back to 1909. However, many of the nearly 900,000 documents found in the collection date from the 18th century. Historically the Library had selected 70% of available depository materials, meaning that we have a rich legacy collection. Now, however, all of our receipts are in electronic format and we catalog 100% of items distributed by the Government Printing Office. Older materials can easily be requested from the Hampden Center.
