NUSearch includes information about publications from federal agencies in both print and online formats, although not all of our collection in physical formats (print, microfiche) 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 and an appointment for pickup scheduled.
Alternatively, search the HathiTrust repository for publications from federal agencies. More than 1.3 million federal publications have been digitized and, being in the public domain, are available to all.

Collections of Digitized Documents
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.
