2019 Biennial Survey: Open for Completion

The 2019 Biennial Survey of Federal Depository Libraries is now open for completion by all Federal depository libraries. 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).

To complete the survey:

The deadline for completing the survey is November 18, 2019.

Before logging into FDLP.gov and opening the survey, we recommend that you answer questions and have them reviewed and approved by your library administration. A 2019 Biennial Survey Preview document is available to assist.

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, please view the Guidance article, “Biennial Survey of Depository Libraries.”
