    The Charles V. Park Library at Central Michigan University has been a selective government documents depository library (Depository Library No. 0286) since January of 1958 and makes available more than 500,000 publications of the United States government. The print government documents collection is arranged on the shelves according to the Superintendent of Documents (SuDocs) classification system, and some documents are available only in microform format. Federal publications are increasingly published only in electronic formats and these are freely available online; they can be found with a Google search. The library's online catalog of holdings, Smart Search, lists the government documents available in our library as well as links to online publications.

    With the exception of reference materials, microformat materials, indexes, and periodicals, government documents may be checked out by any resident of the 4th Congressional District of Michigan. Print documents may be checked out at the Book Checkout Desk for the normal loan periods. Copies of government documents not in our collection can be obtained through Documents on Demand.

    Access to the print government documents collection is made possible during all hours the library is open. Access to digital information is available around the clock. Free access to these collections is guaranteed by Title 44 of the United States Code and by Michigan Public Act No. 367 of 1976.
