National Library Week is a good time to point out that libraries distribute North Carolina state government publications through the North Carolina Publications Depository System. This system ensures that citizens throughout the state can access North Carolina state publications.
The Depository System began on October 1, 1987. The System includes the North Carolina State Publications Clearinghouse, which collects state publications from state government agencies, public universities, and community colleges. The System also includes university libraries around the state, which receive publications regularly from the Clearinghouse. North Carolina citizens can visit these university libraries and use these valuable materials.
The following university libraries receive North Carolina state publications as members of the Depository System:
- University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
- University of North Carolina Wilmington
- University of North Carolina at Charlotte
- University of North Carolina Asheville
- Western Carolina University
- East Carolina University
- North Carolina State University
So stop by one of these libraries to find the North Carolina state publication that you need!
