– Update on the Distribution of Tangible Format Publications to Depository Libraries, December 19, 2013. “Publishing and Depository Services is winding down its distribution of hard-copy publications to Depository Libraries. However, we will still be receiving quantities of some print items at our warehouse in December 2013. We plan to distribute these items in January. To accommodate this change, we have extended the ordering period for all Weekly Checklist (WCL) checkbox items until March 7, 2014. It had previously been announced that the ordering period would end January 31, 2014.”
