The Lewis J Ort library has been a member of the Federal Depository Library Program (FDLP) since 1967 and collects approximately 30% of all government publications, focusing on documents relevant to FSU curriculum and to the communities we serve.
Most print documents and all microform are located in the Government Documents Collection on floor two of the library and are arranged by Superintendent of Documents (SuDoc) classification numbers. Some documents are incorporated into the main library collection, and can be found by searching the online catalog.

Government documents are organized by the Superintendent of Documents (SuDoc) system, rather than by the Library of Congress (LC) call number system. SuDoc numbers begin with a letter of the alphabet that indicates which federal agency produced the document. The major document-producing agencies are listed below:
The Ort Library has bound copies of the Congressional Record and previous publications back to the first Congresses on microfilm and in print.
