  • FDLP logo

    COCC's Barber Library is a participating member of the Federal Depository Library Program (FDLP).

    You'll find printed government documents - Congressional hearings, government reports, and more - in the Library, on the first floor. These government documents are discoverable in the Library's catalog.

    You'll find links to online government information in our catalog, listed below, and on our pages of Resources by Subject, where government resources are included along with other library resources, like article databases and academic encyclopedias.

    If you have questions or need assistance with government documents, contact our Government Documents Librarian, Beverly Adler, at badler@cocc.edu or by phone at 541-383-7795.
