Government Information & Maps

The Government Information area will be closed for construction for the entire summer. Materials will be temporarily stored off-site. Patrons needing to use government publications over the summer should contact Government Information personnel (govdocs@uvm.edu, 656-2542) before the end of the semester. If needs for government publications arise, we will do our best to obtain the materials. Staff will be available throughout the summer.

Federal Depository Library Program logo

Government Information and Maps includes U.S. government documents, legal resources, selected international documents, the Vermont Patent and Trademark Depository Library, and maps. The Bailey/Howe Library is a Federal Depository Library and receives approximately 90% of the material distributed by the U.S. Government Printing Office.

Documents published since 1976 are included in the Library Catalog. Please see staff for assistance with older items. Sheet maps are not listed in the Library Catalog.

The Vermont Patent & Trademark Resource Center (PTRC), designated by the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office (PTO) in November 1996, is free and open to the public. The PTRC is located in the Bailey/Howe Library Government Information Collection.

The Bailey/Howe map collection is a USGS Earth Science Information Center (ESIC) state affiliate and provides state and local information about earth science products and services.

The collection also includes a wide range of spatial data resources, particularly Vermont orthophotography and satellite photography. Computers with GIS software are available.

Everyone is welcome to use Government Information & Maps materials in the library. Federal documents are kept in closed stacks and are retrieved by staff during open hours. Staff are available to assist you in locating materials.

Many legal resources are located in the corridor and are available during all hours that the library is open.

Most federal documents circulate to UVM faculty, staff, students and guest borrowers. Most maps circulate to UVM students, faculty, and staff. Some reference and cartographic resources do not circulate. Maps required for class use have restricted circulation.
