Each year the Government Documents Round Table (GODORT) of the American Library Association selects what it considers to be the most notable publications of the year. 2016 welcomes a wide variety of government publications on topics ranging from climate change to violence in schools to flora and fauna to foreign relations.
View a selection of these documents on display in the second floor reference area of Odum Library. As a member of the Federal Depository Library Program (FDLP), Odum Library makes available publications from the United States federal government.
