This guide provides links to licensed document databases (restricted to the Cornell community or on-campus use), freely available web sources, and the print and microform holdings in Olin Library and the Library Annex. With the exception of the licensed document databases, the Government Documents in the library are available to the general public.

Cornell University Library subscribes to a number of document databases (licensed for the campus community) that provide deep backfiles and cross-searching capabilities. In addition, Olin Library has sets of print federal government documents available to the general public.

Olin Library is one of three Federal Depository Libraries at Cornell, along with the Law Library and Mann Library. Access to online government information is available through the Cornell Library Online Catalog, Govinfo, and Congress.gov.
