Rogers State University Library has been a Congressionally-designated depository for U.S. Government documents in the Federal Depository Library Program since 2006. It is a selective depository which means we choose the series of documents we wish to receive. Currently we select approximately 17% of the publications available from the Government Printing Office, which is in charge of the depository library program. Selections are made based primarily on the curriculum of the University, then on areas of public interest.
U.S. and state government documents in our collection are searchable via the library's online catalog.
These publications provide information useful in many fields, including business, economics, education, history, law, and science.
Some federal documents are arranged by the Superintendent of Documents Classification System (SuDocs) which groups publications by authoring agency. A detailed explanation of this system can be found at the FDLP website.
Rogers State University Library is one of more than 17 Oklahoma libraries participating in the Oklahoma Publications Clearinghouse (OPC) program, the purpose of which is to ensure free and public access to state agency documents. The OPC was created in 1978 by legislation to establish the state publications depository system. State publications cover a wide range of topics from agriculture to vital statistics. Oklahoma Documents held by RSU are searchable in the library's online catalog.
