About Federal Government Resources

The Marietta College Library has been part of the Federal Depository Library Program (FDLP) since 1884.  As a federal depository library, we ensure that  the Marietta College community and the general public receive free access to a wide variety of print and online government resources.  We also provide expertise for finding those resources as well.
