The 2017 Biennial Survey of Depository Libraries is set to launch on October 23, 2017 and run through November 30, 2017. You can now view a draft preview of the questions to help you prepare for submitting your responses this fall. Instructions for completing the survey and additional information will be sent out via FDLP News & Events this October.

The Biennial Survey of Depository Libraries is the means by which depository libraries report their conditions to the Government Publishing Office (GPO). It is administered in odd numbered years and response is required by law. The Superintendent of Documents, under the direction of the GPO Director, is responsible for administering the "Biennial Survey of Depository Libraries" as required by 44 U.S.C. §1909. Data from the survey is used to administer the Federal Depository Library Program (FDLP), to identify new trends, and to assist in the assessments of the conditions and services of Federal depository libraries.
