NUSearch includes information about publications from federal agencies in print, microfilm or fiche, and online formats. However, not all of our federal collection appears in NUSearch.
Effective June 8, 2020, physical items in the Evanston campus libraries and the Oak Grove Library Center can be requested through NUSearch. Effective June 14, 2021 appointments are no longer needed to pick up material in the library building. If you are not in Chicagoland, review the Borrowing Materials and the Returning Materials pages.
Alternatively, the HathiTrust repository includes more than 1.3 million digitized federal publications which are in the public domain and therefore, are available to all.

The vast majority of government publications are now published directly to the web, ensuring widespread availability. However, access to most older government documents remains somewhat limited; these items are generally only available in libraries that are part of the depository program. Many libraries and other organizations, such as those noted below, are working to increase availability by creating digitized copies of these older documents.
