This library is a congressionally designated depository for U.S. Government documents. Public access to the government documents collection is guaranteed by public law. (Title 44 United States Code)

COVID-19 Update

Like most libraries across the nation, we are closed to the public due to the COVID-19. The GPO does not require the library to provide access when the library is closed to the public. Depository libraries will not be required to provide access to their collections when the library is closed. GPO is treating closures due to the COVID-19 virus the same as when libraries close for inclement weather, flooding, other disasters, or Federal holidays.The majority of Govdocs can now we found freely online. As you might imagine, this is very trying for all of us right now and we appreciate your understanding.

The E.H. Little Library has been a selective Federal Depository Library since 1893. The depository collection includes more than 200,000 print and microform publications.

All depository materials, as well as over 150,000 links to online federal documents, are listed in the library catalog.

The depository collection not only supports student and faculty research at Davidson College; it is also open to the public. Members of the public are welcome to use the collection on site; we simply ask that persons unaffiliated with the college please register at the Information Desk and observe our guest user policy.

For information about materials in the collection, please search the library catalog. For help in accessing or using the collection, please contact the Information Desk at 704-894-2331. We are happy to assist you.
