Administrative Notes Technical Supplement (ANTS)

Administrative Notes Technical Supplement (ANTS) served for nearly 30 years, from 1980 to 2008, to inform the depository library community of technical changes. GPO distributed the bi-monthly paper issues to all libraries in regular depository shipments.

Depository libraries used ANTS to get information about libraries entering and leaving the FDLP; classification, item number and cataloging changes; and updates to the pdf List of Classes (4.24 MB) . Library staff members frequently checked publications to identify issues that might affect their collection and materials, and made changes to the publications and associated catalog records as appropriate using the information from ANTS.

Currently, librarians make updates directly in the Web-based system called WEBTech Notes as needed. ANTS was not as current as the real-time updates that the Web makes possible. For that reason, the U.S. Government Printing Office ceased publication of ANTS with the final print version issued, which was  pdf Volume 15, No. 11-12, November (64 KB)
