1 Federal Depository Library Directory (FDLD)
The Federal Depository Library Directory (FDLD), a service of the Catalog of U.S. Government Publications (CGP), is an interface that allows the public to access, search, and export library directory information.
This document supersedes the FDL Handbook (2009) and the Federal Depository Library Legal Requirements (2009). It contains the most up-to-date regulations as established by Title 44 U.S.C. §§ 1901 -1916 (2010) Part III and the Superintendent of Documents.
The FDLP Desktop serves as a centralized resource for the Federal Depository Library Program (FDLP), which disseminates U.S. Government information to the American public through libraries across the nation. Stay up-to-date with the latest innovations and progress of the Program and utilize various tools in order to enhance public services.
