2003 Biennial Survey of Depository Libraries Scheduled for November

The 2003 Biennial Survey of Depository Libraries will be conducted online at <http://www.access.gpo.gov/su_docs/fdlp/bisurvey/03survey.html> from November 1 through November 30, 2003.

The purpose of the Biennial Survey is to report on conditions in the depository libraries. Required by law (44 U.S.C. 1909), the Biennial Survey gathers data from all the depository libraries every 2 years, supplementing the more in-depth inspections or self-studies that are performed every 6 or 7 years.

The survey period will be November 1-30, 2003; however, to avoid the rush, depositories are advised to submit their survey responses early in November. Additional information will be posted at the Biennial Survey web page <http://www.access.gpo.gov/su_docs/fdlp/bisurvey/index.html> in late October.

Your internal Federal Depository Library Program password will be needed to access the survey. If you do not have your depository library password, please contact the help service at <http://www.gpoaccess.gov/help>.
