Keeping America Informed
Federal Government information is made available for FREE public use in Federal Depository libraries located throughout the United States and its territories. As the only member of the Federal Depository Library Program (FDLP) in Palm Beach County and the Treasure Coast, the FAU Libraries' Government Information and Maps Department works to make government resources available to the FAU community, citizens of the 22nd Congressional District, and the people of South Florida.
