Oklahoma Resources

The Oklahoma Publications Clearinghouse of the Oklahoma Department of Libraries was created in 1978 by the legislation to establish the state publications depository system. It collects and preserves publications from all state agencies in Oklahoma. The Clearinghouse distributes agency publications to 17 state depository members--RSU Library is one of the depository members. 

These materials are available in our library collection.  Items are in various formats--books, magazines, journals, newsletters, flyers, posters, maps, reports, legal materials, and CDs.
