Four Weeks Left to Submit Your 2017 Biennial Survey

There are just four weeks left to complete and submit your 2017 Biennial Survey to the U.S. Government Publishing Office (GPO).

It is through this mechanism that depositories fulfill their legal obligation to “report to the Superintendent of Documents at least every two years concerning their condition” (44 USC §1909).

Please note: The PDF file was published in July. Since then, no substantive changes have been made to the questions, but there are minor tweaks to some of the phrases.

In order to complete your survey, login to FDLP.gov using your Federal depository library number and library password (sometimes referred to as ‘internal’ password). If you are unsure of what your library’s password is, the depository coordinator listed in the Federal Depository Library Directory (FDLD) may request information on your library's password through askGPO. Select “Federal Depository Libraries” as the category and “Passwords” as the sub-category. If the depository coordinator listed in the FDLD is no longer the coordinator, please indicate that in the askGPO inquiry.

For more general and background information on the Survey, please view the Guidance article, “Biennial Survey of Depository Libraries.”
