How can I create a library specific government document collection?

Answer

There are 4 material types that make up government document collections.  The types include: International government publication , Local government publication , National government publication, and State or province publication.

To see a search result list of each type of government document, please log into WorldCat Discovery and run each of the 4 queries below: 

li:(library symbol) AND mt:igp  (International government publication)

li:(library symbol) AND mt:lgp (Local government publication)

li:(library symbol) AND mt:ngp (National government publication)

li:(library symbol) AND mt:sgp (State or province publication)

Once we determine which of the material types you desire, we can create a query collection.  If you desire all 4 types, that is okay too, just use

li:(library symbol) AND mt:gpb 

The selection criteria used to create a query collection of government documents will be based on the search logic above.  Just enter the values into the WorldCat selection criteria portion of the query collection set up.
