For State Agencies



Responsibility of State Agencies

The Documents Unit of the Enoch Pratt Free Library receives 16 print copies of all State publications, distributes 14 of the copies to other depository libraries, and keeps 2 of the copies. Many of these documents are listed in our on-line catalog however; some are kept in vertical files located in the Maryland Department at the Central Library. As stated in Section §23-303 of the Annotated Code of Maryland:

(a) Each State agency shall designate an agency publications contact person and notify the center of the designation.
(b) Each State agency shall furnish to the Center a sufficient quantity (16) of each publication to meet requirements of the depository system.

In absence of print publications, electronic documents will be accepted.
