CONTENTS
In 1977, the Federal Government designated Hampton University as a Selective Depository for housing government publications. We currently select, receive, and retain approximately 22 % of the items that are distributed by the United States Government Printing Office (GPO). The collection includes maps, posters, microfiche, publications in print, and electronic information found on the Internet.

LOCATION
All government publications in paper form, including maps, are located on the 1st floor of the Harvey Library, opposite the Circulation Desk and microfiche is on the 2nd floor.

ONLINE ACCESS
Increasingly government information is available online. Many government documents are available through the Harvey Library Online Catalog (HUWebCat) and many others are searchable through an internet search engine such as Google.
