Serving the 1st Congressional District of Illinois
The Paul V. Galvin Library was designated as a depository library by the Public Printer of the United States and the Federal Depository Library Program in 1982. The depository collects about one third of the available documents, the vast majority of which are now offered in an electronic format. The depository's emphasis is on science and technology titles.
The staff of the depository are eager to work with faculty to develop resources to assist their students and instruction efforts. For instance, the resources on the Health Physics and Public Administration tabs of this guide were developed in conjunction with faculty from those programs. Faculty interested in creating a specialized resource page should contact Aric Ahrens (info to the left).
Please consider donating your federal documents to us. Since they are public domain, they can be scanned and posted. They will be available to the whole world in our institutional repository, and discoverable to the IIT and I-Share community through our Online Public Access Catalog (OPAC). Use the contact info at right to offer them to the Galvin Library
