While state government documents are received in paper copy, and increasing number of California State government documents may only be available via State agency web sites. State government documents both in paper copy and online are represented in the University Library catalog.

Publications located in the Government Information stacks can be identified by the “Doc” in front of the call number that you’ll find in the University Library catalog. Please ask at the first floor Information Desk when an assistant is available; at other times ask at the Shields Library Circulation Services to have a staff member retrieve a known document by call number.
