The University of South Alabama Libraries have been a Federal Depository since 1968.
Since the fall of 2012, the Alabama Federal Depository libraries have been using the ASERL Documents Disposition Database as the method for disposing depository materials. Non-depository government documents and depository materials that have gone through the ASERL Database are then offered through Needs and Offers (GPO website, GOVDOC-L, DocTech-L). This LibGuide is a way to organized materials being made available to other libraries.
There are three categories (tabs) within this LibGuide:
OFFERS -- Non-depository materials that are currently available for adoption by other libraries.
NEEDS -- Materials that are needed by the Marx Library to fill-in gaps or replace missing materials in the government documents collection.
DISCARD LISTS -- Depository materials that are currently going through the ASERL disposal method or in the process of being made available for the ASERL Database.
