Government Information and Maps

Federal Depository Library Program LogoGovernment 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.

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.
