Government Information at WSC

The government documents collection at Wayne State College is housed in the lower level of Conn Library. It consists of U. S. government documents, legal reference, documents reference, and Nebraska state documents.

Federal Documents

Conn Library became a selective depository library for U.S. federal documents in 1970. The library currently selects 30% of the items available from the Government Printing Office. Publications are available in a variety of formats, including print, microform, CD-ROM and DVD, and online. Most publications are retained for five years; but the collection includes historical materials of value to our community. Materials not held by Conn Library may be retrieved at Love Library at the University of Nebraska, Lincoln, or other libraries through our Inter Library Loan program. The collection is arranged by Superintendent of Documents (SuDoc) numbers which correspond to the agency publishing the material, such as A (Agriculture), C (Commerce), D (Defense), etc. All U.S. Government Documents are cataloged and available by subject, title, agency, or SuDoc number in the library's online catalog.

Nebraska Documents

WSC has been an official depository for Nebraska state documents since 1982. The collection includes microfiche copies of publications, and paper copies of reference and current legislative materials. Many of these materials are also available full-text online.
