U.S. Government Documents
Publications issued by U.S. government agencies include agency sponsored studies, fact sheets, handbooks, conference proceedings, Senate and House hearings on bills, and Congressional publications. As a federal depository library, the NCSU Libraries receives approximately 86% of these documents. They are housed on the second floor of the D. H. Hill Library and are arranged by SuDoc (Superintendent of Documents) call number.
To find out what was published before mid-1976, you will need to consult the printed Monthly Catalog of U.S. Government Publications in the Reference area of D. H. Hill Library. To find out what we have at the NCSU Libraries, you will have to consult the paper shelf list. Go to the Reference Desk for assistance.
Federal government documents published since 1976 can be searched by author, title, subject, and keyword.
Many of the databases and indexes in the preceding sections index patents. NCSU Libraries is a U.S. Patent Depository Library providing assistance in searching and access to U.S. patents only. You may also search for U.S. Patents via the World Wide Web using the U.S Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) Patent Database.
