The Indiana Light Archive for Federal Documents is a partnership between the Indiana State Library, Indiana University Libraries, Purdue University Libraries, and the University of Notre Dame Library, representing GPO Depository Libraries in Indiana. Our goal is a single archive collection of all federal documents housed in a secure facility with environmental controls that will lengthen the natural life of the tangible documents. Until such a goal can be met, we agree to the establishment, through detailed collection assignments among major depositories, of a virtual light archive.

The establishment of this archive, developed in cooperation with our regional depository, the Indiana State Library, and the Superintendent of Documents, will permit depositories to keep only those tangible documents necessary to serve their individual constituents. Rules for disposal will be developed that will ease restrictions and make management of the state process more efficient and productive. Effective delivery will be an essential aspect of this plan.

The Federal Depository Library Program (FDLP) was established by Congress to ensure that the American public has access to its Government's information. Since 1813, depository libraries have safeguarded the public's right to know by collecting, organizing, maintaining, preserving, and assisting users with information from the Federal Government. The FDLP provides Government information at no cost to designated depository libraries throughout the country and territories. These depository libraries, in turn, provide local, no-fee access to Government information in an impartial environment with professional assistance.

Together the depositories of Indiana will create a light archive that will reflect the reality of the digital age while assuring the retention, access and preservation of the printed versions.
