About this guide
This guide is designed to link the user to key government data and statistics available in an online format and by selected agencies. Library staff CANNOT answer questions about specific government agencies or their services. We will, however, include these resources when appropriate as we respond to our members' reference and research requests.
Additionally, government depository libraries agree to collect and make available to the public core documents and selected resources which may include data and statistics. Forefront Library is NOT a depository library, but the following links will direct you to those libraries in Illinois that participate in depository programs. Please contact a depository directly for additional information.
Directory of Illinois Documents Depositories
"The role of the Illinois depository libraries is to provide statewide access to those publications emanating from Illinois State Agencies."
Directory of Federal Depository Libraries in Illinois
"Libraries that have been designated as Federal depositories maintain information products from all three branches of the Government as part of their existing collections and are responsible for assuring that the public has free access to the material provided by the FDLP. "
