Government Depository Libraries; The Present Law Governing Designated Depository Libraries. Revised.
Joint Committee on Printing, Washington, DC.
The law now in force provides for a class of libraries in the United States in which certain Government publications are deposited for the use of the public. The libraries are known in the office of Superintendent of Documents, Government Printing Office, where the distribution is made, as designated depository libraries. Title 44 of the United States Code which is the authority for the operation of the depository program was codified and enacted during the 90th Congress. Sections of title 44 and excerpts from the Statutes at Large affecting the program are appended at the end of this pamphlet. In the revised title 44, simplified language has been substituted for awkward and obsolete terms, and superseded and obsolete statutes were eliminated. The statutes are intended to remain substantively unchanged even through changes in terminology and style have been made by the codification of title 44. (Author)
