Government Publications and Online Access


Access at Campbell Library

Keith and Shirley Campbell Library is one of 26 New Jersey libraries – and 1200 nationwide libraries – participating in Federal Depository Library Program [FDLP]. A selective depository for U.S. federal government publications, Campbell Library selects specific publications that align with the interests and needs of its Rowan University community of users, and currently receives approximately 22% of the publications distributed by the FDLP. 

Administered by the Government Publications Office, the FDLP was established by Congress to gather and catalog government publications, and to make information free and available to the American people. The former Savitz Library at Glassboro State College was officially designated as a member of the Federal Depository Library Program [FDLP] on November 11, 1963.  

Physical holdings can be found by searching the Library's catalog or ProfSearch, but most Government publications created after 1996 are freely available online. However, some topics can be a little trickier to search than others. Our Government Documents librarian has put together research guides (see right side bar) to help direct individuals to valuable resources based on specific areas of interest or study.
