Where are federal documents located? Can I check them out?
Documents published after 1920 are shelved in open stacks in the east wing of the library’s ground floor – adjacent to the Ainsworth Commons. With the exception of reference tools and rare or fragile items, most federal documents circulate. The earliest fed docs (1786 – 1920) are housed in the Library’s Annex. They are fully cataloged and can be retrieved by Access Services for use in the main library.
