Government Documents & Information: Home

Information from the federal, state, local and international governments

Status of the collection

Currently all materials on the Lower Level are inaccessible due to health and safety concerns. This includes microfiche, microfilm, the physical Government Documents collection and some print journals and magazines. Access will be restored once repairs have been made to the Lower Level and the condition of each collection has been properly evaluated.

The vast majority of these government documents are digitally accessible and our Librarians are happy to help find the needed resources. Additionally, there are also FDLP collections at the Mabee Legal Center and the Tulsa City-County Library. A complete list can be found at
