The Government Documents collection is located on the Lower Level of Stauffer Library. The following directions assume that you are at the bottom of the spiral staircase looking into the collection.
There are several areas within the collection. When you look up a document in Omni, note the Queen's Library and Queen's Location. These headings can be found using the facets (filters) on the left-hand side of your search results, but the library and location information is also found in Omni's description of the item.
Government documents are coded using a system called CODOC which is different from the Library of Congress call numbers used elsewhere in the library. There are three things to keep in mind:
ZZ EC 93E88 comes before ZZ EC21 M12
CA2 ON SC B76 comes before CA2 ON SC 95R27
For more information, refer to the library's Microforms page.
Queen's theses on microfiche are listed in Omni as microfiche 390. They are filed alphabetically by author so make a note of the author's name. Go to the filing cabinet to your right and check in the drawers labelled Microfiche No. 390.
See the instructions above for reading microfiche.
