A Guide to Government Document Access

US Capitol Building on Bright Blue Background

SOU students, faculty, and staff that would like to access Government Documents can do so at this time either through in-person pick-up or online access. 

While the Government Publications office is currently closed to maintain social distancing, patrons that need help finding a physical Government Document can fill out a form in front of the Government Publications office and place it in the basket near the office’s service window. The Government Publications staff will find the document for you to pick up later. 

Access to online Government Information is available as usual through our Hannon Library research guide, https://libguides.sou.edu/federal/

Due to COVID-19, Hannon Library is closed to the public and therefore not able to provide public access to physical items in our Federal Depository Library Collection. However, the public can still access online Government Information from home using the library research guide, https://libguides.sou.edu/federal/

We apologize for the inconvenience, and we will provide full access again as soon as possible. In the meantime, you may contact Dotty Ormes via email (ormesd@sou.edu) for additional help with Government Information.
