Federal Depository Program

An important part of the Nebraska Library Commission Publications Clearinghouse Service is participation in the U.S. Government Printing Office (GPO) depository program for federal government publications.

Federal documents are selected to support the needs of the Library Commission's customers and the research and development needs of the state. The Commission currently receives about 2% of the materials made available through the program.

The Library Commission works with the regional depository at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln's Love Library to support the federal depository network in Nebraska. Today there are nearly 1400 participating libraries nationwide, including 13 in Nebraska.
