BC's Depository Status

BC is a member of the Federal Depository Library Program (FDLP), which is a partnership between the Government Printing Office (GPO) and various Congressionally designated libraries around the country.  As such, BC provides access to government publications for both the university community and the constituents of the 4th Congressional District more generally.

Access to the majority of the Gov Docs collection is now electronic.  This page highlights some of the core subscription and public Gov Docs databases and links to research guides that provide more in depth information on particular types of government resources.
