The Alfred R. Neumann Library is a Federal Depository Library for selected U.S. government publications since 1980. As a depository library we welcome the general public as well as our UHCL community.

Locate federal and state government publications on the main floor of the library, in the reference and general collections, in microfiche and CD-ROM, and on the Web.

Most government documents may be checked out at the Circulation Desk for a three-week loan. In addition to UHCL ID cards, the Neumann Library honors all TexShare cards, UHCL Affiliate Borrower cards, UH system ID cards, and JSC identification cards.
