Arizona State and Local Government Documents Collection


The State And Local Arizona Documents (SALAD) collection contains documents published by the State of Arizona, its Counties, incorporated Cities or Towns, or affiliated Councils of Government; documents produced under the auspices of a state or local agency, board, commission or department, including reports made to these units; and Salt River Project, a licensed municipality. ASU is a primary collector of state publications and makes a concerted effort to acquire and catalog most materials published by state and local governmental agencies.

The ASU Digital Repository provides access to digital SALAD publications, however the ASU Libraries’ non-digitized Arizona documents can be searched through the ASU Libraries Catalog. For additional assistance, Ask A Government Documents Librarian.

Publications issued by the Morrison Institute for Public Programs at Arizona State University are available in the ASU Digital Repository Morrison Institute for Public Policy - Publications Archive collection.

This past fiscal year is best characterized as one of significant accomplishment by the office in the midst of increasing caseloads and budget tightening. Our criminal caseloads are trending back up after some slight reductions in recent years, but the exception is seen in juvenile court filings which are significantly down. We hope this is due, in part, to our prevention efforts and diversion programs. We have proudly partnered with many other agencies to develop new Diversion Courts. We have increased our community outreach and prevention efforts.
