Nebraska State Documents
Depository Library Program

A major component of the Publications Clearinghouse Service is the operation of a Nebraska state publications depository program. Its purpose is to collect the publications of all branches of state government and state-funded educational institutions to ensure that
  • state government information is made available to a wide audience.

  • valuable publications are preserved for future generations.

  • publication and distribution costs are reduced because agencies can refer individuals to the Commission or depositories.

  • Agencies have access to their own publications.
