Government Information, Maps and GIS

The University of Maryland Libraries are part of the Federal Depository Library Program (FDLP). Established by an act of Congress (Title 44, USC), the FDLP ensures public access to information published by the Federal Government. The FDLP provides Government documents at no cost to designated depository libraries throughout the country and territories. These depository libraries, in turn, provide local, no-fee access to the information in an impartial environment with professional assistance.

Our collection of over 2 million documents, includes legislative hearings and reports, federal regulations, census records, statistical reports, court decisions, agency publications, posters, pamphlets and more.

Patrons with current, valid University System of Maryland identification may check out circulating materials from the Circulation Desk on the 1st Floor of McKeldin Library. Media, including CD-ROM's, DVD's and videos, may be borrowed for up to 3 days from the 1st floor Information & Research Services Desk. Requests regarding materials that do not normally circulate must be made with a government information librarian.

The general public are encouraged to use government documents in the library or request them via interlibrary loan from their home library. Special requests regarding access to the materials must be made with a government information librarian.
