Access one of the richest US government collections in the world #lovemyFDL

Have you ever used US Census statistics to support your research? What about quotes from a presidential speech, a Supreme Court opinion or congressional hearing?

Maybe a USGS map, government dataset or report has bolstered the argument of your research paper, book, or article.

Data from the US government can be incredibly helpful.  If you agree, show us some love on social media this month.

Use #lovemyFDL to tweet about your experience, and mention the library, @ucberkeleylib

As a Federal Depository Library (FDL), the Library has received materials from the Government Publishing Office for the past 130 years. Now, the Library has one of the richest US government information collections in the world.

Stop by a reference desk or send us an email if you need help finding information from the US government.
