In order to provide the general public with greater access to U.S. Government publications,
Congress established the Federal Depository Library Program under the Government
Printing Office (GPO), with 50 regional depositories responsible for permanent retention
of material, inter-library loan, and reference services. At least one copy of nearly every
NASA and NASA-sponsored publication, either in printed or microfiche format, is received
and retained by the 50 regional depositories. A list of the regional GPO libraries, arranged
alphabetically by state, appears on the inside back cover. These libraries are not sales
outlets. A local library can contact a Regional Depository to help locate specific reports,
or direct contact may be made by an individual.
