Is the ASL Library a government depository?

Question
 
 

Government Documents

The Appalachian School of Law is is a congressionally-designated depository for U.S. Government documents. Public access to the government documents collection is guaranteed by public law (Title 44, United States Code).

The public is welcome to use our collection during our public hours. Government documents are interfiled with the rest of our collection, so using our online catalog may be the best method of finding materials. There is a photocopier downstairs by the Reference Desk (copies are $0.10 per page). Government information may also be found on microfiche; printing from fiche is free. Finally, government publications may be found online, which will require a password from the Circulation Desk to use our computers (public patrons have no printing privileges). As a reminder, our librarians cannot answer legal questions for the public, nor will they assist patrons in performing research.

For questions about accessing government documents at ASL, please contact Rebecca Belcher, Access Services Librarian.
