The Tarlton Law Library has been a congressionally-designated selective depository for U.S. Government documents since 1965. The Library collects Congressional publications and other law-related titles from the Executive and Judicial branches of the federal government.
The collection is located on the 4th floor of the Library, with most documents arranged by Superintendent of Documents (SuDoc) classification number. Most of the documents collection can be accessed using the Library online catalog (TALLONS).
The collection is overseen by Government Documents librarian Barbara Bridges in the Government Documents Office (Room 4.203). If the office is closed, the Reference Librarian on the main floor can assist patrons during regularly scheduled reference hours.
