Government documents are located on the Ground Floor of Strozier Library in compact shelving.
The 3 main parts of this collection are:
- As a federal depository library since 1941, our library is provided with selected government documents that are available for use by the FSU community and the public.
- As a Florida depository library, we receive government documents published by state agencies in Florida.
- This program is administered by the State Library of Florida.
- United Nations
- As a selective United Nations library, we receive UN government documents. This collection is supplemented by our Readex microfiche collection in Mif 1018.

Florida Geographic Data Library
A mechanism for distributing satellite imagery, aerial photographs and spatial (GIS) data throughout the state of Florida. The data is organized by county, state, and coastal areas.
Florida GIS Data
Links and FTP sites for all Florida counties and Florida agencies up to date on their GIS.
Tallahassee Leon County GIS
Tallahassee-Leon County GIS is the Geographic Information Systems (GIS) program for the City of Tallahassee, the Leon County Board of County Commissioners, and the Leon County Property Appraiser's Office. This site presents information about the GIS program, the map data and map products currently available, and Internet Mapping applications.
Gateways and Portals
An online provider of geographic products and services to the GIS community, including provision of software, data, news, job postings and other services to GIS/CAD professionals via the Internet.
GIS Data Depot
This site houses data in support of the GIS industry. The majority of the data provided has been downloaded by Depot staff from a wide range of GIS Web sites located on the Internet. There is also value added data where Depot staff have performed some translation, attribution, analysis, or other data enhancing operations.
A portal to GIS information on the Web and was created by ESRI, a GIS software developer. The site is intended to educate anyone interested in geographic technology on the value that technology brings to their day-to-day activities. The site also provides GIS users with resources to help them in their work.

GIS Data Resource Guide
Center for Advanced Spatial Technologies)
A guide to mostly on-line and mostly free U.S. geospatial and attribute Data
GeoData Information Sources
From the University of Iowa Center for Global & Regional Environmental Research, an introductory guide for some of the many such resources available online.
GIS Internet Resources
Provides pointers to GIS companies, associations, and government web pages as well as sources of software, data, publications, and services. Information does not reflect use or endorsement by the U.S. Government.
National Atlas of the United States
Interactive map browser allows you to generate maps from a variety of data categories--biology, boundary, environment, geology, people, transportation, water, and reference.

USGS EROS Data Center
The Earth Resources Observation Systems (EROS) Data Center (EDC) is a data management, systems development, and research field center for the U.S. Geological Survey's (USGS) National Mapping Division.
GIS at FSU
The Florida Resources and Environmental Analysis Center (FREAC), established in 1969, is the original center within the Institute of Science and Public Affairs (ISPA) at Florida State University (FSU). FREAC professionals conduct research in the general areas of resource management and environmental analysis, as well as provide advice and technical assistance to state and local agencies. Public lands research and analysis, geographic information system development, and graphic representation of digital databases are current and long-range FREAC research interests. FREAC also trains university students in these areas through direct involvement in projects, providing real-world experiences.
The College of Social Science's GIS Laboratory
The lab endeavors to offer state of the art equipment, software and facilities for research agendas throughout the college that have GIS components and for tomorrow's professional planners and geographers who will be using GIS technologies. Relationships with other departments such as Biology, Meteorology, Geology, Classics, Anthropology, Archaeology and others have been established and all these departments have taken advantage of lab resources and software.
Microforms, such as microfiche, microfilm, and microcards cover a wide range subjects and types of documents, including newspapers, books, periodicals, dissertations, census schedules, etc. For more information, see http://guides.lib.fsu.edu/micromaterials
