    • 3. Steps to finding a government document:4. Look at the catalog record.  Is the item available online?  Is it on microfiche or microform?  Is it a NC document or a US document?  Note the size of the item (in the Description section).  And make sure you write down the number correctly!5. If you still can’t find it ...  If you can’t find an item that is supposed to be in the gov doc stacks, check the microfiche (and vice versa).  If it’s a large item, check the oversize section.  If all fails, check the shelflist to see clues to its location (for the truly ambitious).  And if you’re still stumped, ask Susan or Lynda for help!
