Friedsam Memorial Library is a congressionally designated depository for U.S. Government documents. The library is also a selective New York State Depository for government publications. Public access to the government documents collection is guaranteed by public law (Title 44 United States Code). The physical collection is located on the second floor of the library near the blue stacks. You can also use online resources through this page or through our online catalog. Reference librarians can assist you in finding what you need in the collection.
The following list suggests the best sites to find government information available online for federal, state, international, and foreign levels of government.

Publications included in the Basic Collection are vital sources of information that support the public's right to know about the workings and essential activities of their Federal Government. The Basic Collection serves as a good resource when developing and maintaining a depository collection.
