Amen, Kathleen L.
This document is the first of four in a series of guides to the government documents collection in the academic library at St. Mary's University (San Antonio, Texas); the library has been a selective depository for U.S. Government publications since 1964. The guide describes the document collection in general, including the nature of the collection, the use of Superintendent of Documents classification numbers to organize the collection, its location in the library, and various ways to access the collection. The points of access described are the public catalog; special indexes, i.e., Monthly Catalog, American Statistics Index, Congressional Information Service Index, and Index to U.S. Government Documents; and two special access aids--the Publications Reference File, a microfiche document that is updated bi-monthly, and Subject Bibliographies, a series of more than 300 lists of documents in different subject areas.
