The section provides a resource-rich environment for no-fee access to materials and resources published by the federal government that serves the State of Hawaii. The Federal Documents Section was independently formed on April 19, 1971 to accommodate the special collection and is located on the second floor of the Hawaii State Library. Its mission is to select and support the dissemination of federal information and related materials to supplement the general collection of the Hawaii State Library.
