Become a Contributor

This site is a service of the Federal Depository Library Program. It is maintained by volunteers from the FDL community from institutions across the United States.

In order to become a contributor, volunteers must meet the following criteria:

  • Be a member of the Federal depository library community. Librarians from institutions that are not Federal depository libraries may become contributors if they have permission from OSU and their institution.
  • Adhere to the site's End User Agreement. Volunteers must comply with submission guidelines, site privacy policy, and provide ongoing maintenance for their submissions.
  • Browse Topics links to Federal Web sites, unless directed by the agency that owns the site. Acceptable Federal Government-owned or Government-sponsored Web site domains include .gov, .mil and .fed.us. Browse Topics also links to: quasi-Government agencies and Web sites created by public sector/private sector partnerships; state and local government sites; and some Government-sponsored Web sites that end in .com, .org, or .net (e.g. www.usps.com). This site does not provide links to any site that does not meet the above criteria.
