100 Years of Government Documents

Recognition for being a depository library for 100 years

In 2014, the UCM Government Documents Department celebrates its 100 year anniversary. In 1914, the Government Printing Office designated UCM’s Kirkpatrick Library as a Federal Depository for federal government publications. In the 100 years since, we have provided UCM students, faculty, and the general public with access to the government information needed to meet their research needs and to be well-informed citizens. Whether it was decades of print publications, or now in electronic format through Quest, our library catalog, the UCM Government Documents department continues to be committed to providing access to government information.
