International Government Documents

British Government Documents

Most British documents are located in the Map and Government Information Library. The University of Georgia Libraries maintains standing orders for the Parliamentary Debates and the Papers of both houses of Parliament of Great Britain. Retrospective volumes date back to 1509. Also included in this collection is the Irish University Press' series entitled British Parliamentary Papers, which is arranged by subject.

This collection contains only the publications of Parliament. Several indexes for use with British Parliamentary documents are available in the Libraries and online (see the guide Locating British Documents).

The majority of the collection is housed at the Repository; select science-related Government of Canada publications are shelved on the 4th floor of the Science Library. Selected documents of Canadian government departments and of Parliament are included in this collection.

Government of Canada electronic publications can be accessed on the Government of Canada Publications E-collection site.
