Georgia College was designated a Federal Depository Library in 1950. As a selective depository, Georgia College receives approximately 30% of the documents distributed through the Federal Depository Library Program. Georgia College works closely with other Georgia Depository Libraries to ensure continued access to government information.

 You can find our Government Documents collection on the Third Floor of the Russell Library on the Montgomery Street side of the building.  Government Documents are arranged using the SuDocs Classification system and for the most part, are NOT mixed with the general circulating collection.  When you find a specific title in the catalog, check the location to see if the item is in the Government Documents Collection or the Circulating Collection and get the call number.
