Michigan Local Documents
Though considerly smaller than state and federal governments, local governments publish materials such as charters, codes and ordinances, planning and zoning reports, demographic data, etc. of significant value to residents and business owners within those communities. Local governments also often publish information related to significant events, community anniversaries and local recreation that serve as a source for historical and biographical information about the community and its residents.
Collecting Regional, Local, and Tribal Government Information
Michigan local documents are generally included in the Law and Michigan collections and are best discovered through the Library's catalog, ANSWER.
LM is actively seeking materials that will bolster this element within its collections and welcomes any opportunity to acquire Michigan local government publications. To donate, contact the library at 517-335-1477 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
