About Federal Depository Library Program

"Keeping America informed."

This statement is the basis of the Federal Depository Library Program (FDLP) which started in 1813 after a joint resolution was passed in Congress.

The SIU Morris Library was designated by U.S. Congress as a large selective depository serving U.S. Congressional District #12 in 1932. But our library has government documents originally published in 1700s.

Currently, the SIU Morris Library selects about 86% of the tangible items available from the Government Printing Office (GPO), which provides publishing and dissemination services for the official and authentic government publications to Congress, Federal agencies, Federal depository libraries, and the American public.

The documents are in paper, microfiche, CD-ROMs, DVDs, and videos. Starting 2010, Morris Library subscribed to a company's service to include the cataloging records of all digital born publications distributed from the GPO to depository libraries in IShare@Morris - the Morris Library local cataloging system. These records provide direct link to the online full text of the publications. We do not own the material, we agree to house it in the library and make it available. By law, the material is made available for use by the general public at no cost.
