The St. Joseph Public Library system in St. Joseph, Missouri has been a depository for federal government documents since 1891. St. Joseph Public Library is a selective depository, meaning it chooses only a portion of available publications. The library is depository number 0327A, and serves the Sixth Congressional District of Missouri.

St. Joseph Public Library selects a little more than 20% of federal government publications. Many of those publications are found only through the library’s online catalog, using links included with the records. Others are received on paper, microfiche, CD or DVD and are available at the Downtown Library at 927 Felix Street, St. Joseph, Missouri. Most federal government publications are available for checkout. Ask a reference librarian at the Downtown Library for help in finding federal government publications.
