There is a plethora of resources available from Federal depositories, other libraries, and library organizations to help you learn more about and manage a Federal depository operation.
This guide features various, very helpful resources created or authored by Government information and other librarians. They contain information about and for U.S. Government information librarianship.
Several of these are resources that Government information librarians use daily. How cool is that!
Contact your regional depository coordinator, other librarians, and library associations for more ideas, particularly for state or region focused resources.
FDLP.gov is a Government Publishing Office (GPO) website designed for library staff, specifically Federal depository library staff and those interested in GPO cataloging. At this site, you'll find the latest news about the Federal Depository Library Program and U.S. Government publication cataloging and preservation. You'll also find links to FDLP collection tools, promotional materials, requirements and guidance, and much more.
FDLP.gov's homepage includes rotating features about depository library staff and many other things FDLP-related. To share info with GPO about your depository library, such as photos of events, resources you've created, or other news, see contact info in Promotional Tools and Resources or LSCM Outreach and Support at Contact Us. You and your library may be featured on FDLP.gov or in this guide!
This guide is an update of content in Resources For Federal Depository Library Administration. That guide, modeled after a paper handout distributed in past years at Federal Depository Library Conferences, will be removed from the public FDLP LibGuides in June, 2020.
