Finding Government Documents at Baylor
Because government documents are located in both the Moody and Jones Libraries and in a variety of formats, please ask for assistance at the Information Desk, Jones Library, First Floor.
Government documents published after 1976 are located in the Jones Library on the first floor, and government documents pre-1976 are in Gov Docs Compact Shelving as well as most of the government documents periodicals.
Many government documents are now online and can be accessed through BearCat. Additionally, the SuDoc number (call number) of the document can be searched in BearCat by conducting a Government Document Number search.
