Does UND Have the Material You Are Looking for?
University of North Dakota shares federal government document collection responsibilities with North Dakota State University. What does this mean for the user? Some government documents are available at UND and some at NDSU (many are online).
If you need a document from NDSU, you can request it through Inter-Library Loan for free and the document should arrive within a couple of days (be sure to indicate on the form that you need a government document from NDSU).
Below you'll find two files. The first is a list of the agencies and departments that UND is responsible for providing access to, and the second is a list with the agencies and departments NDSU is responsible for providing access to.
Welcome to the Government Documents Libguide.
This guide concentrates on three areas: federal government information, North Dakota state government information, and Minnesota state government information.

When searching for federal government documents, it is important to understand the role of the Federal Depository Library Program (FDLP).
FDLP libraries across the United States regularly receive shipments of federal documents and are required to allow the public access to these documents. The Chester Fritz Library has been an FDLP library since 1890 and provides access to both print and online federal government materials.
Handily for the researcher of state government documents, North Dakota has a similar program called the North Dakota State Document Depository Program and the Chester Fritz Library is a member library. North Dakota state government documents both in print and online are accessible through the Chester Fritz Library.
Note that UND does not typically collect Minnesota state government documents, although this guide links to some primary resources available online.
