75th FDLP Anniversary Celebration March 10, 2016

UMW Libraries Celebrates 75 Years with the Federal Depository Library Program!

To mark this special occasion, we have planned a full day of events that will take place on March 10th, 2016 in the Digital Auditorium in the Hurley Convergence Center.  Visit this website for full schedule of events

All events are open to the public.



Government information is available on almost every topic. The University of Mary Washington is a depository for both federal and Virginia government documents. Besides paper, documents are available in a variety of formats -- online, CD-ROMS, microfiche, videos, maps, and discs. Most documents owned by the UMW Libraries can be located using the UMW Libraries' Catalog. Information about UMW depository selection and maintenance is available in the Government Documents Collection Development Policy Federal Depository #0633.

As a member of the Federal Depository Library Program (FDLP), the UMW Libraries are expected to provide free and current access to the FDLP electronic collection and the GPO Access databases. See our Public Access Policy for Government Information. Government resources links provide access to government information by branch of government, agency, and subject. Please ask at the Simpson Library Information Desk if you need assistance or use one of the Search Tools to locate materials.
