       Government Documents Speech

                  Jim Livsey, Director, Library and Statutory Distribution, Government
              Printing Office spoke to a large audience on De.ository, Bookstore and Sales
              Aspects of the GPO at the Cultural Center January 21, 1980.         Mr. Livsey gave

                  There are 1335 depository libraries (including 80 law libraries) in the
              United States.    By law none of them may keen a citizen, from using documents.
              Arrangements can be made to guide patrons to specific areas of the library if
              necessary, but no one may be turned away simply because an institution is
              private or very specialized.

                  Mr. Livsey then discussed the Sales Program for non-depository institutions.
              Bibliographic access to approximately 3000 new titles per year is maintained
