State Government Publications Information for Libraries

The Oregon Documents Depository Program distributes documents to its designated depository libraries throughout Oregon. This web page has information and tools to help depository libraries manage their Oregon Documents collections. However, any library may be a virtual depository by downloading bibliographic records for online documents in the Oregon Government Publications digital collection.

Shipping Lists

Each list shows the documents shipped, plus additional information about cataloging updates.

Bibliographic Records

Depository libraries are required to include records for Oregon documents in their online catalogs. The State Library provides two lists of MARC records for libraries to download:
  • Shipping List MARC records -- physical documents shipped to libraries
  • Monthly digital MARC records -- new digital titles cataloged each month

Resources and tools to help:

Oregon Documents Classification System
