Kentucky State Plan for Federal Depository Library Services, 1990.
Kentucky Library Association, Frankfort. Government Documents Round Table.
Noting that the purpose and intent of the Federal Depository Library Program, as administered by the U.S. Government Printing Office (GPO), is to make government information available to the general public, this report presents the fundamental characteristics of the program as it is implemented in the Commonwealth of Kentucky. Descriptions of the federal depository library community in Kentucky and the physical composition of regional and selective depository libraries are included. In addition, a chart identifies the number of depository libraries by their designated type. An overview is then provided of the goals and objectives for the federal depository library community in Kentucky as they relate to the areas of collection development, bibliographic control and access, service, financial responsibility, public relations, and the depository library relationship. Concluding the report is a summary of the approval, review, and revision procedures for the Kentucky State Plan for Federal Depository Library Services, which is reviewed annually by the Regional Depository Librarian. Three appendixes provide: (1) the guidelines for the depository library system; (2) a directory of federal depository libraries in Kentucky; and (3) a copy of the letter of agreement between the depository libraries and the state of Kentucky.
