DSC Depository

The Derrell C Roberts Library & North Georgia College & State University are selective federal depositories serving the citizens of the 14th Congressional District. The University of Georgia in Athens is Georgia's Regional Depository which receives copies of all documents available through the FDLP.

The Roberts Library Depository has approximately 100,000 publications from many federal government departments and agencies including Agriculture, Commerce, Defense, Education, Health and Human Services, Interior, Justice, Labor, NASA, President, IRS, and Congress.

Since 1996, the Federal Government has been migrating documents from tangible formats to the Internet, so some documents can only be found on agencies' websites.
