Promoting Depository Libraries : A Call to Action

More and more senators and representatives have created home pages to provide information to their constituents all the time, both at the state and federal level.

Have you checked to see whether your senators and representatives provide a link to your depository library web page and that of your regional libraries? Don't you think that depository libraries (federal, state, etc.) deserve top billing?

Mary Mallory, Acting Head & Instruction Coordinator, Documents Library, University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign has made an excellent suggestion in GOVDOC-L (June 26, 1997) that all Michigan depository libraries should take note of, whether they are part of the Michigan State Depository Library Program or part of the Federal Depository Library Program.

In case you want to congratulate Mary on her excellent reminder, her address is: Mary Mallory, Acting Head & Instruction Coordinator, Documents Library, University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign, 200D Library, 1408 W. Gregory, Urbana, IL 61801; telephone: (217) 244-4621; e-mail: mmallory@uiuc.edu.
