Government Resources

The Benedictine College Library is one of seventeen Congressionally designated selective Federal Depository Libraries in the State of Kansas. The regional depository is at the University of Kansas Anschutz Library.

Free public access to the Government Documents Collection is available during regular library hours. Many documents are catalogued and incorporated throughout the Library of Congress collection, plus a third floor collection is arranged by the Superintendent of Documents Classification (SuDoc) system, according to the federal agency issuing the document.  Although some documents are available for in-house reference use only, most U.S. government books, periodicals, and other publications may be checked out with a Benedictine library card or borrowed through interlibrary loan. In addition, many federal documents available online can be retrieved by searching the library's online catalog.  The documents collection includes current and historical resources for a broad range of subject areas, including the arts, business, education, health, military science, science, and technology.
