Congress established the Federal Depository Library Program (FDLP) to ensure that the public has free access to the Government's information. Operated by the U.S. Government Printing Office (GPO), the mission of the FDLP is to disseminate information products from all three branches of the Government to over 1,250 Depository libraries in the FDLP program nationwide. Depository libraries safeguard the American public's right to information by making Government information in all formats freely available. This paper discusses the role of the GPO and FDLP, the GPO's organizational structure, the Depository library's obligations and responsibilities, services and collections, referrals and networking, and the Depository's future and challenges.

Photography has been used as a typical tool of recording image since its invention in the nineteenth century. Photographs provide valuable visual information about all parts of society, and a systematic management must be preceded to use these information. The management and preservation system of photographs should reflect the characteristics of photographic medium. It is necessary for many archives to perform appraisal first to collect and manage enormous photographs. Appraisal is the process of determining meaning and value of records, and the reasonable criteria should be needed to carry it out. The purpose of this study is to suggest appraisal criteria for photographic records based on the archival appraisal theories and the characteristics of photography. This study draws on traditional appraisal theories and some literatures for archival management of photographs. This study is organized as follows. The first section examines the concept and values of photographic records and the distinctiveness of appraising photographs.

A Study on the Use and Protection of Copyrights in Public Archives
Si, Kwi-Sun ;
Journal of Records Management & Archives Society of Korea, volume 9, issue 2, 2009, Pages 159~188
In the midst of computerization and digitization of the archives, the way of use and the need of users to use the public archives has been changed and expanded. It draws concerned party's attention to the copyrights in the public archives and the protection of the copyrights of the public archives. This study examines the exiting copyright laws in Korea and some foreign countries, interprets the laws, and presents legal implications when the laws are applied to the public archives held in the National Archives of Korea(NAK). The public records are "literary works" and their copyrights are to be protected. Most of the public archives held in the NAK are also "creative works" which are the presentations of thoughts and feelings of the individuals, the records creators in the public agencies. The holder of the copyrights of the archives is not the NAK, but the agency which created the archives, such as the central government and local governments. To promote the use of public archives, we need to expand the public domain in the public records and archives and the fair use of the archives. To do this, I suggest to amend and complement the Copyrights Act, the Pubic Records/Archives Management Act, and the Opening Records in the Public Agencies Act(FOIA in Korea). The establishment of a coordinating body dealing the copyrights in pubic record and archives is strongly recommended. The coordinating body will provide guidelines on protecting copyrights and expand the fair use and the public domain of the public archives.

The Policy of National Records Management in the Future
Lee, Young-Hak ;
Journal of Records Management & Archives Society of Korea, volume 9, issue 2, 2009, Pages 215~231
In 1999, "Records management of public instituition Act" was enacted. Since then, records management system has been developed, but the level of records management is still low in reality. This article is to present suggestions in policy of national records management. To flourish national records management, 'governance' should be performed during policy propulsion and National Archives of Korea should be politically neutral and independent. In addition, records management system needs to be wide-spread, many different archives should be established, also archives should have archivists. Not only that, managers of archives need to cooperate and thrive with autonomy, decentralization of authority, and solidarity.
