Library Directory

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 Discovery.

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.
