Government           Information    

FEDERAL:  The Wichita State University Ablah Library became a federal depository library in 1901. In 1991 the library also became a Patent and Trademark depository library. Federal depository libraries exist to make federal government information accessible to the public.  There are 18 depositories in Kansas.  Wichita State's collection is located on the library's main floor and is classed in the Superintendent of Documents Classification System.  Documents published after 1976 are in the Libraries' Online Catalog; however, many historical documents are not yet cataloged.  Please consult with the Government Documents staff if you need assistance.  The Government Documents Office is the glassed-in area just beyond the Reference Desk.  

STATE, COUNTY, CITY:  Ablah Library is also a depository for the State of Kansas.  These materials are shelved with the main collection, and all have records in the online catalog.  We also have the codes and many publications of Sedgwick County and the City of Wichita.
