Federal Depository Library Program

HUSL Law Library was designated a selective U.S. Federal Depository Library in April 1998. Although we are closed to the public at this time, the Law Library is committed to providing free public access to Government information for our primary patrons and for all public patrons.

  • As a selective depository, the Library receives approximately 7% of all government documents available through this program.
  • In accordance with the mission of the law library, most depository selections cover a broad range of law-related materials in many formats.
  • Note that public patrons are allowed in-house use of the collection only. Patrons may request assistance locating government depository resources from any librarian staffing the reference desk.

Members of the public who are interested in researching physical items in our Federal depository library collection are encouraged to reach out to us at reference@law.howard.edu.  In addition, access to online Government information is available through our catalog, government websites, and several Libguides.  Contact information for nearby FDLP libraries can be found in the FDLP Library Directory.  We look forward to seeing you in person once it’s safe to do so!
