Government Documents: Ohio Documents


Maag Library is a depository for Ohio state government publications, and therefore receives select publications from state agencies. Ohio documents are arranged using a classification system beginning with O. For example, OH is the designation for the Ohio Department of Health; OHS is the Ohio Department of Highway Safety; ONR is the Ohio Department of Natural Resources. Print Ohio documents are shelved at the beginning of the Government Documents collection on the Sixth Floor of the library.

A good place to begin is by searching MaagNET, the library's online catalog. Search by keyword, title, author, subject or government document number. Many, but not all, Ohio documents can be found by searching the catalog. Titles available online have a direct link in the online catalog. You may also search for Ohio documents in the OhioLINK Library Catalog.
