Essential Titles for Public Use in Paper or Other Tangible Format

The essential titles list is a collection of U.S. Government information resources containing critical information that the U.S. Government Printing Office (GPO) plans to continue disseminating in tangible format in the Federal Depository Library Program (FDLP).

While an online format is now the primary method of making publications available to Federal depository libraries, there are specific titles that are to remain available for selection in paper or other tangible format as long as the issuing agencies continue to publish the titles. These resources are core U.S. Government publications and serve as important reference publications.

The list was developed using input provided by the Federal depository library community, which makes it a valuable aid in building a collection. Everything on the list has been identified by the depository community as a key resource.

Note: There is no requirement that depository libraries select any of the titles on the list.

Selection Limitations

The following publications feature selection limitations:

U.S. Congressional Serial Set
Limited to regional depository libraries and one designated library in each state without a regional.
Bound Congressional Record
Limited to regional depository libraries and one designated library in each state without a regional.
Supreme Court Decisions (slip opinions)
Limited to regional depository libraries and law libraries.

Essential Titles List

This list is subject to change. More resources may be acquired for the FDLP. Alternatively access to resources may change if the issuing agency changes their publishing practices. Check the List of Classes and WebTech Notes for the latest information.
