     The I.D. Weeks Library has been a selective depository library for U.S. Government Documents publications since 1889. The Library selects approximately 45 percent of the publications made available to participating depository libraries. The Documents Collection is arranged by the Superintendent of Documents Classification System (SuDocs), which arranges publications by their issuing agency.  Documents are located on the 2nd floor of the Library. The Collection is especially strong in areas of law, health sciences, earth sciences, education, business, history, and political science. One of the features of the documents collection is its nearly complete coverage of Congressional materials dating from the Continental Congress to the present.
