It has been a congressionally designated depository since 1966. It maintains a strong collection of important publications from a variety of Federal agencies. The Depository collection is available for use by everyone. The Collection includes documents in print and electronic formats on a wide range of topics, e.g. laws and regulations, business and career, census statistics, health, science and technology, travel, education, social security, IRS, the US budget, etc... Since we are a selective depository, we have selected only the most essential items for the library. Items not selected by us can be found in the Newark Public Library. Our most sought after documents are listed here. Most documents are also linked in our catalog. In addition the library has some back-dated publications available. Please check with our Government Documents librarian for further assistance at (201) 343-4169 ext.16 or 17. We encourage you to make suggestions if you want the library to add titles that GPO publishes and that we have not already selected.
