Government Documents


What are the principles and requirements of the FDLP?

Federal Government information that falls in the scope of the FDLP is made available to Federal Depository Libraries (FDL).

FDL’s are located in each State and U.S. Congressional District to increase the availability of government information.

Federal Government information is made available to FDL’s for free in all formats, i.e., paper, microfiche, electronic or CDROM.

The Government Printing Office (GPO) administers the FDLP  requirements as stated in Title 44, United States Code, Chapter 19. 

Each State has a Regional FDL and Selective FDL’s.  Pratt is a Selective FDL, and UMCP is our Regional FDL.
