Did you know that the State Library of Massachusetts has the most complete collection of Massachusetts government documents in existence? While a portion of that collection is held in print format within the State Library’s stacks, an ever-growing number of Massachusetts state publications are available in electronic format, free to all, in our online repository.
From annual reports to meeting minutes to advisories, our online repository contains informative government publications intended for public use. Some of our larger collections include the Acts & Resolves and Legislative Documents, which are especially helpful for researching the history of Massachusetts laws. Other significant collections include the Public Document Series, Official Audit Reports, and state publications relating to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Our online repository is organized hierarchically by state government name, from larger agencies, such as executive offices, to smaller departments, divisions, offices, and programs. If you don’t have a state agency in mind, you can also navigate our repository by browsing subjects or titles, or you can perform a keyword search.
If you ever have any questions about navigating or searching our online repository, don’t hesitate to reach out to us via email (email@example.com), phone (617-727-2590), or our chat service (available Mon-Fri, 9am-noon and 1-4pm).
New state documents are added to our repository each weekday, so check back frequently to see the latest publications from the Commonwealth.
