Information generated by a government can be an invaluable resource.  The United States government, for example, has always produced copious amounts of information dating all the way back to the founding of the Republic.

The McFarlin Library Document Collection, located on the south side of the Lower Level, provides access to print copies of both federal and Oklahoma state government publications.  When you search Summon for your topic, limit your results list to "Government Document", an option found under "Content Type" on the left-hand menu.

In addition, there are many online sources for government publications, produced by both public and private sources.  Below are a few of these.
