The Library holds collections of Official Publications and other material relevant to public policy from British, European and Intergovernmental bodies recognising that they are essential primary source material for the social sciences. Official publications of foreign countries are not collected.

The Official Publications at the University of Sussex are located within the Documents Collection on the ground floor of the Library. If you want to borrow loanable items, please use a self service machine on the ground floor.

The material is arranged on the open shelves in pamphlet boxes and readers are welcome to browse. Items may normally be borrowed for six weeks; some material is restricted for use in the Library only.

The collection

There are three Documents collections:

  • British - this includes both governmental and non-governmental publications, pressure group material and Parliamentary Papers
  • European
  • Intergovernmental - contains publications from organisations covering more than Europe such as the International Monetary Fund, the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development and the World Bank

Many Official Publications are now freely available electronically. Useful links are available under the UK Government information and Intergovernmental organisations tabs above.

For further assistance with using the collection please ask at the Information Hub on the ground floor or contact Collection Development 01273 872930 / x2930.
