The John E Riley Library has been a selective depository library for U.S. Government Documents publications since 1984. The Library selects approximately 20 percent of the publications made available to participating depository libraries. The Documents Collection is arranged by the Superintendent of Documents Classification System (SuDocs), which arranges publications by their issuing agency. Documents are located on the Main floor of the library. The Collection is especially strong in areas of education, health sciences, business, history, and political science.
