State Documents Archive

The State Library maintains the official archive of documents from State of Iowa government and publications from state agencies. Documents and publications are stored in both in hardcopy as well as digital formats. The State Library partners with state agencies to archive state publications online to expand access for Iowans and beyond.

Iowa Publications Online

Iowa Publications Online (IPO) is a web-based repository of documents produced by State of Iowa agencies intended for use by the general public. State agencies are encouraged to partner with IPO for a permanent, secure location to archive publications including reports, newsletters, and other publications meant for Iowa citizens. Archiving with IPO also meets the statutory requirement set for state agencies by Iowa code.
