Government Documents

The Cornette Library is a federal depository for government documents available via the FDLP (Federal Depository Library Program).  Department of Agriculture items published by the Government Publishing Office are a primary strength of the collection. A majority of recent content is available online.

The Government Documents Agriculture webpage has resources related to economics; research; animal and plant sciences; soil and water; statistics, and weather. Additional information is located on the Agriculture Statistics webpage.

All items in the Texas depository area (active until 2011) are included in the online catalog. Examples are: Building an Agribusiness or Small Business Plan (2004), Water Issues in Texas Agriculture (1981); and Statistics of Texas Agriculture (1937).  Most of the Texas publications are available in print.
