VCU Libraries became a member of the Federal Depository Library Program in 1971 and makes available a growing collection of U.S. documents. Most of the fifty states have a regional depository library: a library designated by a U.S. Senator to maintain responsibility for the integrity and comprehensiveness of a state or region's depository collection of U.S. Government information. Virginia's regional depository library is located at the University of Virginia's Alderman Library.
