Introduction

Depository libraries are those libraries specifically designated by the U.S. Government Printing Office to receive and make available U.S. government publications through the Federal Depository Library Program. There are close to 1,400 Federal depository libraries located throughout the United States and its territories, with at least one in every Congressional District. All provide free public access to the great extent of federal government information, in both print and electronic formats. The authority for the Depository Library Program is in Title 44, Chapter 19 of the United States Code. For more information see Government Information at a Library Near You.
