Documents in the Information Center.
The Federal Depository Library Program exists to allow the public free, unrestricted access to publications of the Federal Government, which ensures that the public can stay informed of the activities of its government. In 1978, the Chicago-Kent College of Law Library was designated as a federal depository library, and the Library has been assisting students, faculty and the public in using the government documents in its collection ever since.
Government documents available in the Information Center include federal statutes, U.S. Supreme Court reporters, and the Code of Federal Regulations and Federal Register. Current and historical versions of all these publications are available in print format. Many other government documents in the collection can be found in microform on the 6th floor.
Additionally, directly across from the 9th floor Reference Desk there is a computer terminal dedicated to Gpo Access, the official Web SIte of the U.S. Government Printing Office. By clicking on the GPO Access icon, users can obtain quick access, either via a series of bookmarks or through a keyword search, to electronic version of many recent federal government resources. From this terminal, users can print any documents they wish (for a fee); alternatively, documents can be download to a floppy disk for off-site printing. Gpo Access can also be found on any computer in the Information Center at www.access.gpo.gov/su_docs/
