About the Government Documents Collection

The John F. Germany Library houses a collection of federal, state, and local government documents many of which have been acquired through state and federal programs. The Library has been a member of the Federal Depository Library Program since 1965 and a depository of Florida state documents since 1967.

Highlights of the federal documents include:


State documents include The Florida Statutes back through 1951 and The Journals of the Florida House of Representatives back consecutively through 1897. Examples of other state and local documents are the various area community plans, The West Tampa Library Designation Report, and magazines such as Florida Wildlife and Explore: Research at the University of Florida.

Documents can be identified by keyword searching the library catalog and using the dropdown menu to select "type of material," "government documents." Paper and CD-ROM items as well as microfiche documents are located on the 2nd floor of the west building. Most government documents are reference material that may be used inside the library. Copiers are available for a charge. Many documents in the Library catalog have links to electronic copies online.

Please also visit the Learning & Research Government, eGovernment, Law & Crime, and Tax Information pages for many government document resources.
