You won't find many best selling novels in this library, but you will find any and all state agency and university publications. The Illinois State Library, established in 1839, is the official library for state government. Anyone can access its collections from universities, public and corporate libraries, and information systems. The library is the mandated depository for all state of Illinois publications and the administrator of the Illinois Document Depository Program. The state librarian is also responsible for making electronic state records available via the Web. The library building was renamed the Gwendolyn Brooks Building in 2003 to honor the first African American to win the Pulitzer Prize.
