The Superintendent of Documents, U.S. Government Printing Office, is authorized by law to furnish Government publications 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, the District of Columbia, Guam, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands. Distribution to the libraries is made by the Superintendent of Documents.

It is sometimes impossible to obtain desired publications by purchase from the Superintendent of Documents. Stocks may have been exhausted or the document may be permanently out of print. The depositories provide a valuable 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 publications made available to depository libraries either in printed or microfacsimile form. All 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 publication can be determined by inquiring at the library.
