8. Access To All Formats

The foundation of a depository library collection includes both tangible (e.g. print, microfiche, CD-ROM/DVD) and online content. Depository libraries must provide access to FDLP content, including:

  • Publications selected, distributed, and received through the Federal Depository Library Program,
  • The FDLP Basic Collection,
  • Publications available through official FDLP partnerships,
  • Online publications cataloged in the Catalog of U.S. Government Publications (CGP), including publications found in the Federal Digital System (FDsys); demonstrated through a combination of cataloging, creation of Web pages, or integration of online material into traditional library finding aids such as subject guides.
