Finding Government Documents at NEIU

Government documents are located on the 2nd floor of the Ronald Williiams Library and in the first-floor reference collection.  They are organized by Library of Congress call numbers and can be identified through the library's main catalog.  Items with the prefix DOC. are located on the 2nd floor while those materials with only the prefix REF. can be found in first-floor reference collection.

Examples: 

DOC.REF.KF18 L5 Digest of Public General Bills and Resolutions is located on the 2nd floor.

or

REF.JK1 C66 Congressional Quarterly is located on the 1st floor.

However, some publications on the 2nd floor are organized under the Superintendent of Documents classification scheme (SuDocs) which categorizes documents based on the publishing department or agency and the individual item number.  

Example: 

DOC.CSA 1.10:SU6 Geographic Distribution of Federal Funds in Summary.  The first part of the call number (DOC.) indicates that this document is located on the 2nd floor.  The CSA represents the publishing agency (in this instance the Community Services Administration) and the final part represents the indivdiual item.
