The Law Library serves as a selective depository for the 17th Congressional District, and provides the public and the law school community with access to government publications and information made available through the Federal Depository Library Program (FDLP). This program is administered by the Government Publishing Office (GPO).
The majority of the collection is located on the third floor of the Law Library in Room 310. Many other government documents are available online through BearCat. A second government documents collection can be found on the first floor of the Jesse H. Jones Library on the main campus of Baylor University.
Government documents do not circulate but are available for use by the public during public building hours. Mediated access to online publications for public patrons is available. Reference service is provided Monday through Friday, 9:00 a.m - 6:00 p.m., excluding holidays.For a select list of U.S. Government websites, please see our U.S. Government Resources page.
