Government Documents Department Resources of Interest
The Federal Depository Library Program (FDLP) is authorized through Title 44, United States Code, Chapter 19. The Program began in the early 1920s. The Federal Depository Library Program at Fort Hays State University began in 1926 with the establishment of the Government Documents Department at Forsyth Library.
The Department houses and maintains publications of the United States, State-foreign governments, and the United Nations. The Department also functions as the Library's reference center for government information.
The Federal collection is arranged by SuDoc classification, in which materials are grouped by the issuing agency, not by subject. The state-foreign collection is arranged alphabetically by the name of the state or foreign government. The United Nations collection is arranged by the U.N. classification system.
