Delaware Documentation Collection
"Delaware Documentation" was a distribution program to provide libraries with publications from Delaware agencies and related organizations. The publications were distributed in microfiche, received directly from the Delaware Public Archives. The program ceased in 2002.
The Delaware Documentation ("Del Doc") microfiche collection is in the Microforms Area on the Lower Level, Microfiche S 72. Note: These publications are NOT listed in DELCAT.
Indexing of the collection is provided by a series of checklists.
