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. The main collection is housed on the library's third floor. 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 may be retrieved by searching the library's online catalog. Arranged by the Superintendent of Documents Classification (SuDoc) system according to federal issuing agency, the documents collection includes current and historical resources for all subject areas, including health, business, military science, science and technology, and the arts.
