The FDLP's mission is to "provide free, ready, and permanent public access to Federal Government information, now and for future generations." The Utah Tech University Library was designated as a Federal depository library in 2023. We are one of 9 selective libraries in the state of Utah.
The U.S. Congress first authorized the distribution of Government documents to universities, historical societies, and state libraries in 1813. The U.S. Government Publishing Office (GPO) has overseen the FDLP since 1895. Currently, over 1,100 libraries across the nation are members of the FDLP.
