ESU's Kemp Library is a depository for United States and Pennsylvania state government documents. In 1966, Kemp Library was congressionally designated as a federal depository library in the Federal Depository Library Program (FDLP). The FDLP is administered by the Government Publishing Office (GPO).
What are government documents?
What types of government documents can I find at Kemp Library?
As a selective depository within the FDLP, Kemp Library may chose what publications and formats (print, online, microfiche) are housed in the collection. Currently, the collections contain documents in print, electronic (i.e. online linked in this guide and in Primo Library Catalog), and microfiche (you'll need to use the microform reader on the main floor). Kemp Library strives to align government document collections with ESU curriculum and local research interests (i.e. Tocks Island Dam controversy).
