Government Documents Collection

The physical Documents Collection is located on the main floor of the Knight Library on the University of Oregon campus in Eugene, Oregon. The government Documents Collection contains publications from the U.S. government, the State of Oregon, and various Oregon city and county governments.  It also contains documents published by Canada, Great Britain, and the European Union.

Users may retrieve items from the Documents Collection for themselves and may use interlibrary loan, to get documents. Staff can provide assistance in locating, understanding and utilizing these collections.
