Minnesota Government Resources

The Library has Minnesota publications, many of which are on the web. Others can be found in the Minnesota Documents Collection in the third floor Microfiche area.  To find a Minnesota Document in the microfiche collection you need a Minnesota Document Number.  To find Minnesota Document Numbers do the following:

Consult Newly Acquired Minnesota State Government Reports, a web site that contains monthly lists of current publications.

For other publications, use the catalog for the Legislative Reference Library in Legislative Reference Library Catalog and do a title search or a keyword search with the phrase Minn Doc added. Look for the Minnesota Document Number on the item record e.g. MINN. DOC. NO. 98-0114.

Microfiche indexes are provided for each year (through 1998) and are found next to the Minnesota Documents collection in the Third Floor Microfiche Area

Further information on Minnesota state agency documents, including lists of recently received state agency publications, can be found on the Legislative Reference Library Web.

 Some publications and other information from Minnesota government web sites are available through Minnesota.gov.
