The UCI Libraries' print or legacy United States Government Documents collection is located in the Ayala Science Library (Fifth Floor Drum Floor Plan).. The UCI Libraries are a selective depository for United States government publications.
Though the collection focuses on subjects in the social and political sciences, there are considerable collections of statistical, scientific and environmental resources. Our core print collection of depository items in print is arranged by Superintendent of Documents (SuDoc) classification.
The vast majority of contemporary federal depository items are received as e-resources and are discoverable in ANTPAC and Melvyl.
