U.S. Government Publications in the UCSB Library

UCSB Library is a selective depository for publications from the United States government. The U.S. Government Publishing Office (GPO) provides government information at no cost to designated depository libraries throughout the country. These libraries, in turn, provide local, no-fee access to government information in all formats in an impartial environment with professional assistance. Any member of the public may visit these depository libraries and use the Federal depository collections.

Most publications can be identified through the UCSB Library Catalog. We have a large collection of technical reports: some can be accessed online, while many others are available in the Government Information collection. Refer to the technical reports guide for more detailed information.

Information about the scope of the collection housed at UCSB Library is available in the U.S. Federal Publications Collection Development Policy.
