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.

2015 National Security Strategy at http://www.whitehouse.gov/sites/default/files/docs/2015_national_security_strategy_2.pdf
This is the President's agenda for National Security options. As President Obama states, "This is an ambitious agenda, and not everything will be completed during my Presidency. But I believe this is an achievable agenda, especially if we proceed with confidence and if we restore the bipartisan center that has been a pillar of strength for American foreign policy in decades past. As Americans, we will always have our differences, but what unites us is the national consensus that American global leadership remains indispensable. We embrace our exceptional role and responsibilities at a time when our unique contributions and capabilities are needed most, and when the choices we make today can mean greater security and prosperity for our Nation for decades to come."
