· Federal Publications: As a selective federal depository, Lied Library collects approximately 70% of the publications distributed by the Federal Depository Library Program. These have been selected to meet the needs of the UNLV and Las Vegas communities. The Library receives these publications free of charge and agrees to provide free public access to them.
· State and Local Publications: Most of the Nevada state publications, as well as many of those from county and city governments, come to UNLV from the Nevada state depository program administered by the Nevada State Library and Archives (NSLA). As with the GPO federal depository program, NSLA distributes these publications to state depository libraries free of charge, while the libraries in turn make them available to the public. Some state agencies and local governments send us their publications directly through various arrangements, and the library occasionally receives government publications as gifts.
