Revised Substitution Guidelines for Selectives

GPO revised the guidelines for selective depository libraries to substitute tangible depository materials for access to online government information dissemination products. Guidelines for Depository Libraries: Substituting Online for Tangible Versions of Depository Publications by Selectives can be found under Collection Management.

In addition to enumerating the substitution criteria, the Guidelines provides assistance in working with your regional, determining if a publication meets the criteria, considering issues and best practices before substituting, and dealing with the tangible publications.

Guidelines for Depository Libraries: Substituting Online for Tangible Versions of Depository Publications by Selectives became effective on 05/22/2009 and supersedes Guidelines: Substituting Electronic for Tangible Versions of Depository Publications, dated 09/24/2008.
