Introduction to Library Resources

This guide is to give you an overview of resources available through the Drain-Jordan Library, similar to what students will learn in our Library Introduction classes.

Government Documents Depository


The Drain-Jordan Library at West Virginia State University has been a member of the United States Federal Depository Library Program (FDLP) since 1907. Learn more about the role of depository libraries and the FDLP.

As a selective depository, we receive approximately 10% of the items distributed to participating libraries via the United States Government Publishing Office (GPO).

For more about the FDLP at WVSU, feel free to contact the Government Documents Librarian.
