Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Split Out in List of Classes

As part of LSCM’s plan to phase out the microfiche format for FDLP distribution, there is a change to the List of Classes of United States Government Publications Available for Selection by Depository Libraries.

Each title in the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) has been broken into separate item numbers. This change only applies to the paper format. Libraries will be able to profile for individual CFR titles for which they are interested. For example, some libraries may be interested in receiving just CFR title 3 – The President.

Libraries that selected item number 0572-B will note an increase in their item selection count. This reflects the one item number being split into 49 item numbers (Title 35, Panama Canal, is no longer published). Selective depositories may log in to DSIMS and deselect unwanted individual titles of the CFR.

This change does not affect the CFR Index and Finding Aids. The CFR Index volume is still available for selection in paper format under item number 0572.

If you have any questions, please submit them to askGPO > Login > Other depository library question or issue.

Summary of this communication:

  • The CFR has been split into 49 separate item numbers – one for each CFR title.
  • Selective depositories may deselect individual unwanted CFR titles.
