Utah Publications Depository Program. Manual of Guidelines for State Agencies, Revised [and] Manual of Guidelines for Depository Libraries, Revised.
Utah State Library, Salt Lake City.
Two manuals provide guidelines for users of the Utah Publications Depository Program. The first, "Guidelines for State Agencies," is designed to assist agencies in complying with the depository law. The program is designed to collect Utah State Governmental publications and to make them available through libraries. State publications include books and other print materials, as well as audiovisual materials produced by state agencies. Depositing these materials provides citizens with ready access to information published by the state at a minimum cost and effort. The responsibilities of the state agency include designating a contact person for communication between the agency and the State Library Division and standardizing title pages so that publications can be entered into a database. Sample title pages and information on how to deposit are included. Five appendixes list the depository libraries and contact persons, and give other details of the depository system. The second guide, "Manual of Guidelines for Depository Libraries," describes the services and responsibilities of the depository libraries. All depository libraries are expected to loan or provide photocopies of depository materials to other libraries on request. Seven appendixes provide information about the libraries and criteria for their operation, with a copy of the application to become a depository library. (SLD)
