Government Documents (pre 1982)

J Documents are government publications that were received by the library prior to 1982.   These materials are not listed in the BU Library Search and are not searchable online.  Instead, they are listed in a card catalog in the Reading Room.  J Documents may be found in two places: either in the 6th floor stack at the back (beyond the circulating books) or the unbound (ie smaller) JDOCS which are shelved in the Reading Room.

Some examples of JDOCS:
