Ohio Government Documents Depository

Bowling Green State University became an Ohio depository in 1953 and receives all agency publications distributed through the state depository program. Our state collection numbers about 20,000. The collection includes agency publications such as reports, directories, pamphlets, leaflets, posters, newsletters, and journals; Ohio General Assembly materials including the Laws of Ohio, and the House and Senate Journals; and judicial information.

Most of the material can be checked out for three or more weeks. Like our federal collection, Ohio publications are distributed in several formats, including, books, pamphlets, microfiche, videos, and CD-ROMs. The state agencies are also providing access to a number of titles on their web sites. The primary Ohio document collection is located on the first floor of Jerome Library next to the Periodicals Collection
