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.

The U.S. Government Publishing Office (GPO) launches and ushers in a new, dynamic way for the public to discover and access Government information on the three branches of the Federal Government. Govinfo is a user-friendly, modernized site that provides an easy to use navigation system accessible on smartphones, tablets, laptops and personal computers. GPO receives information from Federal agencies and organizations in all three branches of the Government. Its content feeds The Library of Congress’ and the Federal Register site. Currently in beta, govinfo will replace GPO’s Federal Digital System (FDsys) in 2017.
