Teaching with Government Documents

"The goal of education is the advancement of knowledge and the dissemination of truth." John F. Kennedy

Research and Teaching with Government Documents.

The resources available from the Government Information and Maps Department, including U.S. documents, Florida documents, and Map Collections, are versatile and applicable across various classes. Our Government Documents Coordinator and Research and Instruction librarians are eager to collaborate with instructors to integrate these primary resources into their curricula and facilitate class visits. We offer customizable instructional sessions suitable for both undergraduate and graduate levels.

If you seek an instructional session or presentation from either the Documents Coordinator or a Research and Instructional Department Librarian, please submit a request via our Request a Library Instruction Session, Workshop, or Tour form. Kindly provide details such as the class title, size, preferred date, and time of the class meeting. We recommend making your reservation at least two weeks in advance to ensure availability.

Should you desire content related explicitly to Government Information or tailored to a specific subject area aligned with our collections, the Documents Coordinator is at your service. He is prepared to collaborate with you, shaping sessions that delve into introductory discussions on government research, exploration of primary resources, the history of the Federal Depository Library Program and Government Documents, and other relevant topics.

Additionally, we offer the option to curate a course guide highlighting library resources and government-specific materials relevant to your course content. For personalized recommendations on items, topics, or assignments suited to your class, we invite you to contact us through the Request a Course Research Guide form. We are committed to supporting your instructional goals with tailored guidance and recommendations.

Our Government Documents Coordinator Librarian is available to assist you with your research inquiries. At any stage of your research journey, whether you require guidance on navigating the government information process or locating relevant government resources, you can request a research consultation with our Government Documents Coordinator Librarian.
