How do you find out what is contained on these discs? All of the full-text journals found on the discs are listed in the library’s Journals: A to Z list . The listing of a journal that is found on the CD’s will look similar to the following: “ American Rifleman: from 1993 to April 2003 on ProQuest CD in the Hewes Library Print Holdings.” Should you find you need an article from these CD’s, please ask for assistance from any reference librarian.

The new system is searchable in a variety ways; by branch, agency, document title, subject, date; and all results are full PDF documents. Popular titles include the Congressional Record, the Federal Register, laws, and Presidential Documents. The digital format not only allows for ease in searching, but also faster delivery and assures the preservation of the documents even as technology changes.
This new product is the latest in GPO’s charge to disseminate America’s government information. Hewes Library has been a partner in GPO’s Federal Depository Library Program since its inception in 1860. FDsys is the latest product offered in this 150 year endeavor to provide citizen’s free and open access to their federal documents. A short video from the Government Printing Office talks about the new FDsys software and how it is improving access to government information.
