What is the Federal Depository Library Program?

Every day the U.S. Government issues congressional bills, laws, regulations, presidential documents, studies, and other documents on a variety of topics. The Federal Depository Library Program (44 U.S.C. § 19), administered by the U.S. Government Publishing Office, was established by Congress in 1813 to ensure that the American public has access to government information in depository libraries throughout the U.S. and its territories. Members of Congress may designate up to two qualified libraries within their region.
