FDLP eXchange Review Periods Increased

Many depository libraries are either closing or limiting services during the COVID-19 pandemic. In recognition of this, GPO is increasing the review periods in FDLP eXchange to ease the burden on regional and selective depository libraries and to prevent libraries from missing opportunities to obtain depository materials they need to serve their users.

The following changes will take effect this afternoon, Tuesday, March 17, 2020:

  • Regional review periods will be increased to 180 days.
  • Selective review periods will be increased to 90 days.

Special notes for Regional depository libraries:

  • Any Regional that does NOT want review periods changed should email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. before 4:00 p.m. (EDT) today, March 17, 2020, to request that their review periods remain as they are.
  • Regionals can change their own review periods back whenever they are ready. See the training video,Getting Started- Regionals, for instructions on how to do this.
  • Regionals should communicate their preferences for Needs and Offers during this period with their Selectives.
