Aloha to all our Patrons

The Joseph F. Smith Library Government Documents Collections serves both the Brigham Young University Campus community and the Oahu Congressional District 2--Windward and North Shore--Community.

The purpose of a Selective Federal Depository Library is to make U.S. Government information accessible to the public. To accomplish this expectation:

  • A collection of about 25% of all Federal Depository Library Program materials are readily accessible with appropriate indexes and search tools for free use by the public.
  • Government materials circulate for all patrons in accordance with established Library circulation policies.
  • The Library facilitates the use of materials within the library by providing access to photocopy machines and equipment for reading and reproducing microforms.
  • One computer workstation is designated for accessing, printing, and downloading electronically-formatted materials received through the Federal Depository Library Program.
  • Reference personnel are available to assist both students and community patrons in searching for information.
  • Some library services and materials normally require BYUH identification. Government materials may be checked out upon presentation of public identification, i.e. driver's license, photo identification, student identification card, etc.
