Government Documents

The Government Documents Department's collection contains a variety of documents and publications issued by federal, state, and local (Jefferson County and Birmingham) governments.

The Birmingham Public Library has been a Federal Depository Library since 1895, with the majority of the Department's federal material supplied by the United States Government Printing Office.

The Department is a Patent and Trademark Resource Center as well, containing information relating to patents, trademarks, and copyrights.

In addition, the Department serves as an affiliate agency of the Alabama Data Center, which disseminates demographic information about the state of Alabama.
