Yale University Library's depository collections

Yale University Library is a depository for publications from the following governments and IGOs:

Although many documents and publications from these organizations are now available electronically, the library continues to receive core documents in print and to maintain rich historical collections in these areas. The library's depository holdings are supplemented by subscription databases that facilitate full-text searching and access to these collections.

In response to the COVID-19 virus, Yale University Libraries is open only to Yale affiliated constituents. The Lillian Goldman Law Library remains closed. This means that Yale University Library is unable to provide public access to the physical government depository collections at this time. 

For more details about the scope and strengths of Yale's government documents collections, please consult our collection development policy.
