The Chester Fritz Library has been a Federal Depository Library Program (FDLP) library since 1890 and the university is currently a joint regional depository with NDSU. As a result, the Chester Fritz Library has access to both print government documents and internet-based ones.
FDLP libraries across the United States regularly receive shipments of federal documents and are required to allow the public access to these documents so that users don't need to journey to Washington DC to see the materials.
The library maintains access to materials like the Congressional Record, which provides daily proceedings and debates of Congress going back to 1789.
Chester Fritz Library is also a member of the North Dakota State Document Depository Program.
North Dakota state government documents both in print and online are accessible through the Chester Fritz Library.
