Supplement 2 to Special Publication 305: Publica-

tions of the National Bureau of Standards,

The Superintendent of Documents, United
States Government Printing Office, is author-
ized by law to furnish Government publica-
tions to designated depository libraries.

Under provisions of Title 44 of the United
States Code, certain libraries are designated
depositories for Government publications.
Through them, Federal Government documents
are made available to residents of every State,
District of Columbia, Guam, Puerto Rico, and
the Virgin Islands. Distribution to the libraries
is made by the Office of the Superintendent of
Documents.

It is sometimes impossible to obtain desired
publications by purchase from the Superin-
tendent of Documents. Stocks may have been
exhausted or the document may be permanent-
ly out of print. In these instances the deposi-
tories render an invaluable service by keeping
such publications permanently available. Every
Government publication cannot be consulted
at all depository libraries. Designated
Regional Depositories are required to receive
and retain one copy of all Government publica-
tions made available to depository libraries
either in printed or microfacsimile form. Ali
other libraries are allowed to select the classes
of publications best suited to the interest of
their particular clientele.

These libraries are now receiving selected
publication series of the National Bureau of
Standards for general reference use. Whether
a given library has a copy of a particular publi-
cation can be determined by inquiring at the
library.

from the Superintendent of Documents. Many
can be consulted at libraries. Also, in many
cases, photoduplicated copies can be purchased
from the Library of Congress. For full informa-
tion concerning this service, write to the Photo-
duplication Service, Library of Congress, Wash-
ington, DC 20540.

Certain NBS publications are out of print be-
cause they have been replaced, or partially re-
placed, by material issued by other organiza-
tions. In this connection NBS is able to offer the
following information:
