Government Resources for FAU & the Community

The Government Information and Maps Department works to make government resources available  to the FAU community, citizens of the 22nd Congressional District, and the people of South Florida.

Locating Federal & State Resources

Reading RoomAs a member of the Federal Depository Library Program and a State Depository Library, we provide access to government information resources in many formats. Print materials can be found in the Library Catalog, which also contains many fulltext e-resources.

The Department provides assistance in the use of  statistical resources. See Best Census & Statistical Sites for useful links.

Legal information is available on our Legal Resources E-collection page. Government information resources on microforms (including NTIS microfiche) and in electronic formats are also provided by the Department.

Congressional Hearings


Congressional Hearings offer important primary resources for many research topics. Full-text from 1824-2014 is available through ProQuest Congressional Hearings database. Free access to hearings published online by GPO can be found at FDsys.

Learn more, and get helpful search tips, from our Finding Congressional Hearings web page.

Maps in the Collection


Help in locating any of our over 38,000 physical maps can be found on our Maps in the Documents Collection web page. We have an extensive collection of topographic maps as well as historical, geologic, political, and topical  maps. We also provide access to various collections of digital maps.

Going overseas or need maps for a class or project? Visit the International Travel Maps Collection on First Floor East.

Discover Florida Documents


The State Library provides many kinds of information, from colorful pamphlets, popular magazines, and reference books to interesting web sites. Discover Florida Documents!

Older and historical Florida Documents can be located on the shelves of the Documents Collection by searching the Florida Documents Index which uses KWIC Index Classification numbers.
