Federal depository libraries ensure free access to government information and help people with using those documents.

(NAPSI)—In partnership with the federal government, depository libraries take their mission of protecting the public’s right to know quite seriously. That’s why for a century, they have been providing no-fee access to government information with professional assistance.

Administered by the U.S. Government Printing Office (GPO), the Federal Depository Library Program takes as its motto: Government Information at Your Fingertips: Federal Depository Libraries.

Government documents are available on such topics as health and nutrition; laws, statistics and presidential materials; science and technology; business and careers; education; history; and world maps at nearly 1,200 federal depository libraries throughout the United States and its territories.

In addition to historical publications dating back to the early days of the republic, there is also a network of librarians who can facilitate access to materials.

Plus, the program also provides access to federal government information online through GPO’s Federal Digital System (FDsys) at That way, anyone can search or browse congressional, presidential and federal agency documents—and it’s all free.
