The NYS Library retains three print copies of all New York State Documents. One preservation copy does not circulate, and two copies are made available for public use. The NYS Library sends one copy to the Library of Congress and, through the Documents Depository Program, distributes print materials to participating libraries free of charge where enough copies are available
Depositing Electronic Items
The NYS Library accepts electronic copies of NYS agency publications that were published within the last five years. The Library is not accepting digital copies of items published more than five years ago.
Acceptable formats include TIFF and PDF (PDF/A if available).
