Docs in Library Catalog

Searching for Government documents in the Library's online catalog is best done using the Classic Catalog.

Using the Advanced Search and selecting the Govt Docs under the Location option allows you to search for titles only found in the Documents collection.

Using SUMMON will not always do a complete search of our Document holdings.
