Member, Federal Depository Library Program
K-State Libraries has participated in the depository library program since 1907. Government Collections explains a bit about the collection and the Libraries' committment to the citizens of Kansas to provide research assistance.
A member of the Federal Depository Library Program (FDLP) since 1907, Kansas State University Libraries is committed to assisting the citizens of Kansas in finding and accessing U.S. government information.
The K-State government documents collection currently consists of 78% of all the documents available through the Government Printing Office (GPO). There are, however, seventeen (17) other depository libraries scattered throughout Kansas, so even if a document is not available here, there is a good chance that one of our sister depositories can provide us with a copy.
Government documents can be checked out and, usually, have the same check out period as the rest of the Libraries’ regular collection. Maps may be checked out for seven days.
Each depository designates a coordinator whose responsibilities include research assistance. Although most research requests can be handled by Library Help, located on the 2nd floor, if you would like to meet with Regina Beard, please feel free to make an appointment.
