          About Government Information


          Government Documents are official publications of government agencies.  You may be asked to include a government document or webpage in your research papers because they are considered "Primary Resources".  This means that it is original research or an event witnessed by someone involved in the event or who personally witnessed the event.  These include, statistical studies, environmental reports, laws and regulations, diplomatic correspondence and other official records. 

          The Duane G. Meyer Library serves as a Federal Depository Library and as a full depository library for Missouri State Government documents.  This means that the GPO and the Secretary of State's (MO) Offices send us free documents and we agree to provide free and open access to the collection and assist you with locating and using the materials.
