The Highline Library is a selective Federal Depository Library, which means the library receives a selection of publications from agencies within the United States Federal Government. These publications, which may include books, CD-ROMs, maps, posters, pamphlets, and periodicals, contain information on careers, business opportunities, health, research, and many other subjects.
Most of our government documents are shelved on the north-east corner of the fourth floor, and are arranged by the Superintendent of Documents (SuDoc) classification number. The SuDoc classification number groups publications together by the agency that published the document.
Any search for government publications at Highline should probably begin with One Search (scope: Library Catalog), where you can search for government publications by title, author, subject, SuDoc number, or using keywords. One Search (scope: Library Catalog) will tell you the location of the publications we own and whether it is on the shelf or checked out.
