Government Documents

Government Documents at Central Arizona College

Government documents provide the public with an enormous amount of information, including statistics and research spanning such broad topics as healthcare, education, science, space research, the environment, and politics.

The Central Arizona Signal Peak library participates in the Federal Depository Library Program (Depository 0022A). The government documents are available to college students, staff, faculty, and the general public to browse and check out.  Most of the current print materials are shelved with the general collection and are identifiable by the government documents label on the item.  Other print documents, including the Senate Hearings, are located in the government documents area on the second floor of the library, and are organized by the government documents classification (SuDoc) system. Library staff will be glad to assist anyone needing assistance in accessing any government document.

The library makes much of its selected government documents accessible through linked records in the library’s online catalog; these links can be accessed at the library with the assistance of library staff or from home. Staff can help to find government documents and other collection items in the online catalog.

There is also a dedicated computer workstation set aside on the 2nd floor to access online government documents.
