COVID-19 and Visitors

Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, the NCCU School of Law Library is closed to visitors until further notice.


Access to online government information is available as usual through this library catalog search and in this guide through the FDLP Basic Collection and U.S. Government Agencies websites. If you have any questions relating to government information, please email our reference staff.


Government Documents Collection

The NCCU School of Law Library has been a selective depository in the Federal Depository Library Program (FDLP) since 1979. The Law Library’s Government Documents Collection includes selected print, microfiche, and electronic resources that the Law Library receives free of charge from the Government Publishing Office (GPO). Print resources are located on the first and second floors of the Law Library, and the microfiche resources are located in the Microforms Room on the ground floor of the Law School. The microfiche collection, which is uncataloged, is composed mainly of congressional hearings and documents and reports of various federal agencies. For assistance in accessing the documents collection, please consult the reference librarians.
