This short guide will help you find State of Oklahoma documents in the OU Library.

Overview

The University of Oklahoma has been collecting Oklahoma government documents since before statehood in 1907, but the Oklahoma Documents Depository system was not officially founded until 1976. For this reason, pre-1976 Oklahoma state documents are oftentimes difficult to locate in the OU library. But since the State Depository System was established, there has been a clear flow of State of Oklahoma Documents and the documents are more readily available in the OU Library. OU ceased its Oklahoma depository in May 2018, following the December 2016 closing of the Government Documents service point.  

 The Oklahoma documents are housed in the LSC Storage on HW 9. Their records are in the OU Catalog. To view any of the physical document resources, you now must have the items paged via Sooner Xpress request, found here: https://libraries.ou.edu/
