Government Documents at the uOttawa Library

The University of Ottawa Library automatically receives documents distributed by the Depository Services Program (the DSP program concluded in 2013), the United Nations (with some exceptions), and the European Commission.

Our collection is equally enriched by donations and acquisition of publications from other foreign governments and international organizations such as OECD (Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development), World Bank, UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization), IMF (International Monetary Fund), and multilateral development banks.

The publications from international organizations and governments are located in different libraries, including Media Resources (microforms), GSG Information Centre (maps), Morisset (annual reports, statistics, studies, royal commissions etc.), Brian Dickson (parliamentary publications, gazettes, treaties etc.) and, Health Sciences Library (World Health Organization, specialized studies from Health Canada etc.). Check the library catalogue to find out where a specific document is located.

Please note that certain collections -- e.g. official UN documents -- are not listed in the catalogue. Do not hesitate to contact me or a reference desk at any uOttawa library for more information.
