Cross posted to the listservs GOVDOC-L, FEDLIB, and LLSDC-L.

It has come to the attention of our Library staff that effective October 1,
2006, the U.S. General Services Administration Library
(http://www.llsdc.org/sis/federal/fll_directory.htm#GSA) has been
permanently closed and its resources are be disbursed throughout the
agency.  It is not yet clear what will happen to its collection of Federal
Depository Library materials, which technically, I believe, belongs to the
Federal Depository Library Program under the Superintendent of Documents,
not GSA.  The Library (Depository Library No. 0092C) is currently listed as
selecting and receiving 11% of all federal publications available in the
Depository Program. The library is also listed
(http://www.llsdc.org/sourcebook/about-union-histories.htm) as being one of
the few sources in the world for certain compiled legislative histories to
U.S. public laws (we were seeking one such compilation - that's how we
found out).  Helen Davenjay at GSA
(http://www.gsa.gov/Portal/gsa/ep/contactus.do) is the current contact for
questions about the Library.
