Washington State Government Information

The James E. Brooks Library's Government Publications has been a full depository for Washington State government publications since 1965, receiving all materials available through the Washington State Library. In addition, many older government publications have been acquired as gifts.

Washington State publications can be located using OneSearch. Call numbers for many of these resources begin with Wa, and the location is listed as documents.  However, we are in the process of transferring this collection to the main book stacks under the Library of Congress classification in order to make it easier for users to find and use these materials. Assistance with locating materials is available at the Government Publications & Current Periodicals service desk. The telephone number is (509) 963-1541.  You may also contact the Government Publications Librarian directly at (509) 963-1592.
