Great Seal of CaliforniaSan Francisco Public Library (SFPL) has been a full depository for California State documents since October 15, 1945. However, the collection at SFPL dates back to 1850, the early days of California statehood. Through the depository program, the Government Information Center houses state agency annual reports, budgets and financial analysis, directories, research reports, periodicals published by state agencies, and other select documents.

As yet, not all of the documents are in the online library catalog. If you need assistance, contact the Government Information Center at (415) 557-4500, or send an email to
