Please be aware that a large portion of our Federal Documents collection is not yet listed in our library catalog. Most of what we have in print, with some exceptions, was published between 1950-present. While everything produced from mid 1994 to the present is in the catalog, much of what was published prior to this period is not.
The library catalog is where you can search for books, videos, DVD's, etc.
The Superintendent of Documents (SuDocs) classification system is designed to group together publications by the same government author. Within an agency or department, publications are grouped according to the subordinate organization. The purpose of this system is to uniquely identify, logically relate, and physically arrange each publication so that all publications of a single agency or department may be found together. For more information on SuDocs numbers, see GPO's introduction to the Superintendent of Documents Classification System.
One Search is a great place to start your research. It allows you to simultaneously search through a variety of databases and the ECU Libraries' catalog.
