The United States Government Printing Office (the GPO) is the world’s largest printer and you have access to much of that here at Booth Library’s Federal & State Depository. Government Documents (GovDocs) are not just legislation, statistics, taxes or HealthCare.gov: GovDocs can enrich your day-to-day existence in all kinds of ways!
