The Duluth Public Library has been a depository library for U.S. government publications since 1909. The Library is a selective depository and does not receive everything that is published by the government. Most documents received are shelved in the Government Documents collection, but some, such as the Code of Federal Regulations, the Public Laws, the Federal Register, and the U.S. Code, are cataloged and included in the Reference, Nonfiction, or Periodicals collections. For more information, ask at the service desk on the second floor of the Main Library or call (218) 730-4200/option 5.
