Oregon Documents Repository
About the Repository
The Oregon State Library has administered the Oregon Documents Depository Program since 1907, collecting, preserving, and distributing publications of Oregon state government.  In 2006, the Library instituted the Oregon Documents Repository, bringing the Depository program fully into the 21st century.  The Repository collects, preserves, and provides access to online publications of Oregon state government.
 
Like the print Depository Program, the Repository depends on the cooperation of publishing agencies, and of Oregon Documents Depository libraries, to provide continuing access to public documents.
 

Access
Browse/Search the Repository via the Oregon State Library Catalog.  The Library's catalog includes links to the archived documents and information about paper equivalent documents in the Library's collection.
 
Oregon Documents Depository libraries will also include records for items in the Repository, as will the WorldCat database, which is available to state employees through the State Library, and to others through their local public libraries.
 
Oregon New Electronic Titles (OrNET): Monthly lists of new titles added to the Repository.
 
MARC records for new titles added to the Repository are available to download.
