Joint Regional Depository for United States Public Documents: A Case Study in Nebraska.
Hafiz, Mary G.
This case study documents the cooperative efforts of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln libraries and the Nebraska Publications Clearinghouse to form a joint regional depository for United States documents, and explores their solutions to problems of facilities, personnel, and finances. It includes the unique agreement eventually approved by the Superintendent of Documents allowing the university to retain the full pre-1974 collection and the clearinghouse to maintain the full or master post-1974 collection. The agreement further allows each library to receive a full set of new publications that they may better serve their differing audiences, and to participate in interlibrary loan with smaller depositories with more limited collections. The letter proposing the agreement, the text of the agreement, and the letter of approval are included. A bibliography lists 13 references. (RAA)
