Dacus Library has been a part of the U.S. Federal Depository Library Program since 1896. As a selective depository, we receive 35 percent of the documents published by the U.S. government. Our collection supports the research and teaching mission of Winthrop University and the information needs of the 5th Congressional District.
Hours: Monday - Friday, 8:30 am to 5:00 pm.
As a security measure, a Winthrop University identification card or a scheduled appointment will be required to access the government documents collection. Researchers must call, write or e-mail before coming to the library so that we may better serve you. Many government documents are available full-text on the Internet or linked through the library catalog.
Please note: Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, physical access to the library is limited to currently enrolled Winthrop students, currently employed Winthrop faculty or staff, and current community pass holders. For more information, see the Return to Learn: Library Services during COVID-19 guide.
If you need assistance with government information, remote reference services remain available for all users. You can contact the Government Documents Department via email or phone. You can also contact the Reference Department for assistance.
