Tutt Library Federal Documents

Colorado College, established as a Federal Depository Library and participated in that program since 1880, has a solid historical collection of government publications dating back to 1774.

The collection of paper, microfiche, and maps is particularly strong in publications of the Congress, Smithsonian Institution, Census Bureau, Interior - particularly the USGS, Labor, State, some areas of Agriculture and Treasury and surveys of the west (Haycen, Powell, Wheeler, King and Pacific Railroad).
