What is the United States Code?

The United States Code is the codification by subject matter of the general and permanent laws of the United States. It is divided by broad subjects into 51 titles and published by the Office of the Law Revision Counsel of the U.S. House of Representatives. The U.S. Code was first published in 1926. The next main edition was published in 1934, and subsequent main editions have been published every six years since 1934. In between editions, annual cumulative supplements are published in order to present the most current information. The Library has the 2006 and 2012 (most current) editions of the United States Code.  It is available in the Main Stacks on the 2nd Floor and they are "Library Use Only." The call number is KF62 2012 .A2. For more information visit the U.S. Government Publishing Office's Federal Digital System
