News from the FDLP
Mendik Library participates in the Federal Depository Library program (FDLP). As a selective government depository, Mendik Library receives approximately 21% of the materials available through the FDLP, which is administered by the Superintendent of Documents of the Government Printing Office. The New York State Library in Albany is the regional depository for FDLP materials and receives all government documents distributed through the program.
Many of the U.S. documents are received as microfiche and are housed in the microform room on Level L2 of the library. These items are arranged by Superintendent of Documents (SuDoc) classification numbers. Other FDLP items received in print, as well as all Federal Primary Materials (KF1-KF1499) may also be found on Level L2.
You may search the Mendik Library catalog for government documents by keyword, title, or SuDoc number.
