The Elusive Documents collection consists primarily of publicly funded scientific reports that, for whatever reason, received a limited distribution upon publication. These reports are of significance either to the State, region, or to the university curriculum. The primary area of emphasis is on the broad subject of natural resources. It is our intent to make a large number of these important, yet scarcely known reports, available to researchers everywhere.

We need your help! USU Librarians are hard at work obtaining and digitizing these elusive government documents. Please peruse the list of elusive documents below. If you find any of particular importance, please contact Head of Government Documents, John Walters (john.walters@usu.edu). We'll work to prioritize your requests.
