New Web Page Shows Benefits of FDLP


To document the benefits to libraries of being in the Federal Depository Library Program (FDLP), the Library Programs Service (LPS) has launched a new "Stay With The Program" campaign. A variety of materials are available on a new Web page, at the URL noted above. The campaign was coordinated with the Depository Library Council's Operations Committee, Subcommittee on Attrition and Retention (SOAR).

This site includes links to 2 new SOAR publications: "Suggested Responses to Frequently Cited Reasons for Leaving the Depository Library System," and "Benefits of Being a Federal Depository Library." A discussion of benefits from a public library perspective, presentations at Depository Library Council meetings and at Federal Depository Library conferences, discussions of costs and savings resulting from participation in the program, and substantive messages posted to the GOVDOC-L discussion list are also included.

Additional materials will be added as they become available. LPS encourages anyone in or out of the FDLP community to submit additional material to this resource, via a form on the Web page. LPS will post all appropriate and useful submissions.
