Government Document Depository

Regis University has been a selective depository for federal government documents since 1915. Housed in the library, these U.S. government publications are excellent sources for statistical information and authoritative studies.

The depository covers a wide range of topics, including federal departments and agencies, museums, published reports from federal offices, texts of hearings or proceedings, statistics, periodicals, handbooks and bibliographies. Selection is made on the basis of support of the curriculum and research needs and with some regard for the needs of special borrowers whom the library serve as one of the depositories of Colorado's 1st Congressional District.

Regis University selects approximately 29 percent of all published government documents, with emphasis on materials published by the departments of Commerce, Education, Health and Human Services and Labor. Regis University also selectively collects Colorado state government documents.

Most of the physical government documents can be found on the first floor of the library. A growing number of documents are only available electronically. Bibliographic and citation information can be found through Lumen, the library catalog. Choose "Government Documents" in the drop-down menu to the right of the search box.
