State Docs at UND

The Department of Special Collections Chester Fritz Library acts as the state of North Dakota document depository for the University of North Dakota. Approximately 8,300 items are cataloged, including annual and biennial reports, statistical reports, miscellaneous agricultural reports, serials, directories, newsletters, bulletins, bibliographies, and rules and regulations.

Note that some North Dakota materials have been cataloged and can be searched for in the ODIN Catalog search box above, however, many materials have not been cataloged and require discussion with Special Collections about access.  Finally, Special Collections has separate hours and check-out policies than the rest of the library, so be aware before you go.

The Department also makes available over 460 linear feet of uncataloged state documents filed by agency, including bills and laws, election committee minutes, transcripts of public hearings, newsletters, brochures, and other miscellaneous printed materials.

If you're looking for North Dakota government legal information (for example, you need to trace how a bill became a law at the state level), please contact the Thormodsgard Law Library.  Their services, including reference and checking out of books, are available to undergraduate and non-law graduate students as well.

Chester Fritz Library does not actively collect Minnesota, Montana, or South Dakota state documents.
