Government Documents

The GBC Library became a Federal Depository for Government Documents in 1992. We receive about 19% of distributed information. Publications are available from Congress as well as a variety of government departments, such as Agriculture, Census, Defense, Education, Health & Human Services, Interior, Justice and Labor.

GBC Government Documents are available for use to Great Basin College students, faculty, staff and members of the greater community. Information is available in a number of different formats, including book, journal, pamphlet, brochures, video, CD and DVD, maps and microfiche. Many documents are available full text online by searching our catalog, or through the Government Printing Office. If we do not have a particular document, it may be borrowed from another library through the interlibrary loan program. The University of Nevada, Reno is the regional Federal Depository and receives almost 100% of government distribution.

Government Documents are located on the second floor of the library.

The Great Basin College Library became a member of the Foundation Center Funding Information Network in December 2002.
