About the Law Library's Government Documents Collection

Our Collection

The Indiana University Law Library in Bloomington has been a Congressionally designated participant in the Federal Depository Library Program (FDLP) since 1978 selecting approximately 22% of the material available through this program. The vast majority of the documents in our collection originate from the FDLP. The documents collection is particularly strong in areas of civil rights, environmental law with comprehensive acquisition of justice, judiciary and legislative material.

The FDLP and Its User

The Federal Depository Library Program is based on an agreement between the Government Printing Office (GPO) and participating libraries nationwide to make U.S. government information, regardless of format, accessible to the public and to assure future access to this information. The participating depository library selects and receives government information free of charge from GPO and, in return, agrees to make this information freely accessible to the public.

Selection of government information in the I.U. Law Library is based on the needs of its primary users, the I.U. Law School Community. However, the Law Library welcomes anyone who wants to use the Documents Collection during regular library hours without restriction of use.
