How do I get government documents and other material shelved in the Mudd Library?

Selected government documents are available in the Social Science Library reference collection. Reference documents do not circulate. Self-service photocopiers and scanners are available. Non-Yale affiliates can access government documents in Yale's depository collections in one of the following ways:

    • Government documents not located in the Social Science Library can be requested through Orbis (the Yale Library catalog) Place Requests function and delivered to any library on campus. Help with the Orbis place requests form is available here.
    • Government documents not found in Orbis can be requested using this Place Requests form. Please enter as much information as is known about the document that you are looking for, to facilitate determining if a particular document is in Yale’s government depository collections.
