If you're just getting started looking for government information, you can start with the Popular Resources. You might also find what you're looking for in our catalog. Please note that if you're looking for something in our collection, while all government documents are given a SuDoc number, we do not catalogue based on the SuDoc number; all of our materials, government documents included, are interfiled.

"Keeping America Informed:Celebrating 150 Years of the U.S. Government Printing Office
World War II Posters
During World War II the U.S. Government Printing Office printed posters created by various offices, agencies, branches, and bureaus of the United States. The posters were meant to gain support for the war, encourage sacrifice, inspire patriotism, recruit, and unite the country.
The collection of World War II posters on display at the State Library of Ohio was donated to the State Library by Lt. Richard Fisher, an Army Intelligence Officer. He worked at the State Library as a documents librarian prior to entering the service."
