Humboldt State University became a congressionally designated selective federal depository in 1963, but the collection can date back to the 1860s. On behalf of our 50th year anniversary as a federal depository, the Government Documents department would like to take the opportunity to share with you some of the interesting and useful documents that we hold.
Federal and State documents come in all formats. You can find documents in print, microfilm, microfiche and more commonly now, electronic digital resources. Some of the documents you might find in the collection range from the United States Constitution, children's books, information on space attire, National Forest Maps, posters, and congressional hearings by the federal and state legislature. You will also find documents in other languages, such as Spanish. Take some time to look around. Public access to the government documents collection is guaranteed by public law. (Title 44 United States Code).
