Introduction

The U. S. government is the largest publisher in the world. The GPO (Government Printing Office) prints information for all three branches of the federal government. The Federal Depository Library Program (FDLP) disseminates U.S. Government information to the American public through libraries across the nation, including Middlebury College. The information resources we receive from the federal government are very strong in the social sciences and sciences, especially economics, the environment and statistics. This information is available to anyone who wants to see it, including library patrons not affiliated with the College. All of the tangible information resources we receive as a federal depository library collection are owned by the government, not the college.

General information about the FDLP and detailed Collection Management procedures can be found here: http://www.fdlp.gov/
