MLC collects, catalogs, and maintains an archival collection of over 60,000 Mississippi state agency issued publications as mandated by the Mississippi Code as a part of the State Depository Program. State government publications and reference services are accessible to patrons on the second floor of MLC and online at our state documents website. Additionally, agency websites provide yet another point of access to agency publications.
MLC staff also publish a State Documents Publication Index, which lists recently issued publications provided to the state depository.

MLC is also a designated Federal Documents Depository Library and maintains a collection of federal publications focusing primarily on agriculture, education, census data, and labor statistics. For questions regarding federal documents, please contact Lawrence Smith, Patent Librarian.
