The library at Hartford’s Trinity College is getting some national recognition.

The U.S. Government Printing Office this month picked Trinity’s library to spotlight in its regular feature honoring “depository libraries,” where federal government documents are held for public use.

The recognition came after federal officials inspected Trinity’s library in Hartford last fall.

The library received high marks for the staff’s professionalism and recent work to organize documents in ways that make them easily accessible to students in particular majors.

Trinity was first designated as a federal depository library in 1895. It’s among about 1,250 nationwide, including the Connecticut State Library and 16 others in Connecticut.
