Government Documents: Ohio Documents


Maag Library is a depository for Ohio state government publications, and therefore receives a variety of 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 the library's online catalog--MaagNET. 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.
