Government Documents

The District of Columbia Public Library serves as a Federal Depository Library.  Depository libraries serve the public every day by providing free access to a wealth of U.S. Government digital information products. 

As a federal depository library, the DC Public Library is required to have the titles in the "basic collection" accessible for immediate use. These titles are vital sources of information that support the public's right to know about the workings and essential activities of the Federal Government. This list is subject to change.

The library also serves as an access point for District of Columbia government documents.
