Introduction Text

Government information is an important component of any research inquiry. LSU Libraries became a federal depository library in 1907, but its collection of government publications dates back to 1789. There are multiple government agencies that produce information on a wide range of topics. We can assist university students, faculty, staff, and researchers as well as anyone from the public with government information research and questions.
