Federal Depository Library Program (FDLP) Symbol
"The Federal Depository Library Program was established by Congress to ensure that the American public has access to its Government’s information. GPO administers the FDLP on behalf of the participating libraries and the public. Information products from the Federal Government are disseminated to these nationwide libraries that, in turn, ensure the American public has free access to the materials, both in print and online."

GPO ~ From Government Printing Office to Government Publishing Office
The U.S. Government Publishing Office (GPO) is the Federal Government’s official, digital, secure resource for producing, procuring, cataloging, indexing, authenticating, disseminating, and preserving the official information products of the U.S. Government. The GPO is responsible for the production and distribution of information products and services for all three branches of the Federal Government, including U.S. passports for the Department of State as well as the official publications of Congress, the White House, and other Federal agencies in digital and print formats.
GPO provides for permanent public access to Federal Government information at no charge through our Federal Digital System (www.fdsys.gov), partnerships with approximately 1,200 libraries nationwide participating in the Federal Depository Library Program (FDLP).

"The vision of the Federal Depository Library Program is to provide Government information when and where you need it ... permanent public access to Federal Government information, now and for future generations..." GPO Study of Regional Depositories
The UCI Libraries' print paper United States (Federal) Government Documents collection is located in the Ayala Science Library (Fifth Floor Drum).
The vast majority of our federal depository items are now received as e-resources and are discoverable in either ANTPAC or Melvyl from anywhere in the world. In addition to the United States documents collection online and in print, our licensed database resources provide extraordinary digital access to the documents that make up the history of the United States.
The UCI Libraries are a selective depository for United States government publications. Though the collection focuses on subjects in the social and political sciences, there are considerable collections of statistical, scientific and environmental resources. Our core collection of depository items in print is arranged by Superintendent of Documents (SuDoc) classification. An explanation of the SuDoc system is available at this LibGuide's SuDoc Classification tab and at the FDLP Desktop.
