About the Government Documents Department

Designated as a Federal Depository Library, Roberts – LaForge Library provides a gateway to government information for Delta State University as well as the Cleveland community. The library receives approximately 32% of government publications distributed through the Federal Depository Library Program (FDLP) of the Government Printing Office (GPO). The collection, consisting of material from all functions of the government, reflects the interests and research needs of the academic and local communities.

Roberts – LaForge Library ensures free public access to all government publications located in its collection and maintains a high level of reference and technical services for its government publications. The print and CD collection is located on the first floor, adjacent to the reference collection. The Serials Department, located on the second floor, houses the microfiche collection. With the exception of certain reference material, paper documents have a 7-day check out period.
