Ask a Librarian

Welcome to Government Information Services

The WVU Libraries have been the Federal Depository for the state of West Virginia since 1882. It also has been a depository for state publications since 1996. We are committed to providing free public access to government information to WVU faculty, staff, and students, as well as citizens of West Virginia. For assistance in accessing government documents, ask at the reference desk or contact Christine Chang, Regional Librarian, cchang@wvu.edu (304) 293-0331

WVU Libraries Government Information Services is located on the first level of the Downtown Campus Library, and is part of the Reference Department. Information about physical access, directions, hours, and parking can be found through links from the Downtown Campus Library site.

Federal government documents, including many databases on CD-ROMs, are received and processed in the Downtown Campus Library and then distributed to other libraries by subject.  Most libraries on campus contain some federal government documents.
