Has Your Library Submitted Its 2019 Biennial Survey to GPO? Deadline: Nov 18

There are just two weeks left to complete and submit your 2019 Biennial Survey to GPO. The deadline to submit is November 18, 2019.

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).

  1. Print out the 2019 Biennial Survey Preview document.
  2. Fill out the answers and have your director review and approve of the responses.
  3. Log into FDLP.gov using your library’s FDL number and FDLP password. (EX. 0123A and FDLP012345 respectively.) The login button is in the upper right corner.
  4. Once logged in, copy and paste this URL into the browser: https://www.fdlp.gov/2019-federal-depository-library-biennial-survey
  5. You will be directed to instructions and a link to the survey.
  6. Fill in your responses and check the box indicating your Director has approved of the responses.
  7. Click Submit to complete the process.

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.”
