About Government Documents at Eccles Health Sciences Library
A member of the Federal Depository Library Program (FDLP) since 1970, the Spencer S. Eccles Health Sciences Library has an unique historical print collection of medical and health sciences federal government publications available to the public. Both Marriott and Quinney Law libraries on campus are also selective FDLP depositories. Merrill-Cazier Library, Utah State University, is the Regional Depository for U.S. Government publications in the state of Utah.
In this 21st century, most current government documents can be found online, which our selection criteria favors. Find locations and links to government documents and data in our campus Library Catalog. Other finding aids and links to government information are listed in this guide.
Additionally, we have some physical print documents from the Utah Department of Health, although the two other libraries on campus, Marriott and Quinney Law are designated state government document libraries. Find state government publications at Utah State Library, the full repository for state of Utah publications.
Historical government information in general (pre-1976) and specifically health-related (pre-1990) can be located using a variety of paper finding aids available in the library. Please ask us for assistance.
