III. Description of the Federal Depository Library Community (FDLC) in the Commonwealth of Kentucky

There are 20 federal depository libraries in the Commonwealth of Kentucky. The oldest depository library in Kentucky is located at Centre College. The Grace Doherty Library has been a selective depository since 1884. The University of Kentucky has served as the regional depository library for the state since 1967, having been a selective depository since 1907. Louisville Free Public Library has been a selective depository since 1904 and, in 1988, became a Patent Depository Library. The depository community reaches the citizens of Kentucky through academic, public, and special libraries throughout the Commonwealth, as well as through the State Library.

The depository library collections offer access to information in all subject areas from agriculture to zoology. In addition to housing and maintaining the publications of the United States Federal Government, various depository libraries maintain special collections of Kentucky state documents and other national and international publications. Many depository libraries also offer their patrons access to government information through electronic databases.

The composition of the Federal Depository Library community in Kentucky is as follows:
