BLM Publications

Our BLM publications include documents produced by the BLM's precursors, the General Land Office and the U.S. Grazing Service. For more information on the General Land Office and the history of the BLM, please visit the BLM history page.

Most BLM publications are held at the BLM Library in print form but, for your convenience, many also are available online. Online access generally dates back to the 1990s. Please contact the BLM Library at blm_library@blm.gov for assistance locating publications. To purchase hard copies of select publications, please email the BLM's Printed Materials Distribution Services (PMDS) or visit the PMDS website.

Certain publications are accessible only to BLM employees. Please note that, while the BLM Library provides access to publications, records administrators and managers are the authority on many documents, including directives.
