UK Libraries and the U.S. Federal Depository Library Program

 UK Libraries has been a partner in the Federal Depository Library Program [FDLP] (a network of libraries providing free access to information published by the U. S. Federal government) since 1907. The collection now consists of almost 3 million books, microforms, maps, posters, CDs and videos. In addition, UK's depository status provides users with on-line access  to many U. S. government databases, e-books, e-journals and websites. As a regional depository library (accepting everything published and distributed by the Government Printing Office through the FDLP and maintaining it for as long as UK has regional status) UK Libraries is committed to acquiring publications predating depository status,  thereby developing a strong collection of  publications documenting our nation's history from as early as the first Continental Congresses.
