Entry Description
The Indiana State Library is celebrating its 50th anniversary as an official Regional Depository Library of the Federal Depository Library Program.  

The Indiana State Library has participated in the Federal Depository Library Program since 1963. This depository library program is administered by the U.S. Government Printing Office (GPO) through which selected U.S. government documents are made available in libraries throughout the country.

The depository library system is a long established cooperative program between the federal government and designated major libraries throughout the United States. Certain classes of government documents are distributed free of cost to those libraries for the purpose of making such documents accessible to the American public.

The United States government is the largest publisher in the world. It distributes materials in a variety of formats, including electronic, CD, microfiche, and paper. In addition to Congressional bills and presidential documents, the GPO distributes pamphlets describing national parks and how to grow tomatoes, magazines like "Aging" and "Monthly Labor Review," and books on the history of the Revolutionary War and exhibition catalogs from the Smithsonian Institution.
