Federal Depository Library Program

A member of the Federal Depository Library Program (FDLP) since 1907, Kansas State University  Libraries are committed to assisting the citizens of Kansas in finding and accessing U.S. government  information. 

Some facts about our collection:

  • We currently have 78% of all the documents available through the Govenment Printing Office (GPO).
  • There are 17 other depository libraries throughout Kansas so be assured that if you can't find something here, we can borrow it for you from one of the other depositories.
  • Most government documents can be checked out for the same check out period as the rest of the Libraries' regular collection.
