According to the Government Publishing Office:
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. As part of its publishing program, the U.S. Government Publishing Office (GPO) through the Federal Depository Library Program (FDLP) distributes certain classes of Government documents free of cost to designated libraries throughout the United States and its territories.These libraries are known as Federal depository libraries.
Federal depository libraries must offer free, public access to their Federal collections, even if the depository library is part of a private academic institution. In addition, information specialists are available at these libraries to assist the American public to locate Federal information.
Indian River State College is a selective Federal depository library. While the College does not receive every document that the Federal government publishes, it receives between 20-25% of published documents.
The collection is freely accessible to the public and professional assistance is provided to all library users. The collection is located on the first floor of the library adjacent to both the public services desk and the computers.
