Federal Depository Library

In 1913, depository libraries across the country were created to house federal documents. SAC's depository was established in 1972 as Depository Number 0591B. The U.S. government has made an heroic effort to transfer agency information to the Internet, much of which you will find accessible here. Whatever the format, paper or electronic, all depository documents are listed in SAC's Online Catalog.

Documents shelved throughout the library may be used in-house by any patron. Documents published in electronic format may be accessed from computer workstations within the library or at home.

The San Antonio College Library is proud of its depository collection. As with the rest of this library's collection, documents are accessible to the disabled. For assistance with documents, please contact librarians at the 2nd Floor Reference desk.

BUREAU OF COUNTERTERRORISM AT http://www.state.gov/j/ct/index.htm

  • The Bureau of Counterterrorism leads the Department of State in the whole-of-government effort to counter terrorism abroad and to secure the United States against foreign terrorist threats.

    The predecessor organization to the Bureau of Counterterrorism was the Office for Combating Terrorism, created in 1972 upon the recommendation of a special committee appointed by President Richard Nixon following the terrorist attack at the Munich Olympics. The committee determined that an office was needed within the Department of State to provide day-to-day counterterrorism coordination and to develop policy initiatives and responses for the U.S. government. The Office for Combating Terrorism became the Office of the Coordinator for Counterterrorism in 1985, and the Bureau of Counterterrorism in 2012.

    In 1994, Congress officially mandated the Bureau of Counterterrorism in Public Law 103-236 [H.R. 2333].

    The Bureau's site contains Country Reports on Terrorism, the Global Counterterrorism Forum, and speeches and statements from the Secretary of State, as well as media notes and fact sheets concerning areas of terrorist activities.
