Shipping Lists

The Daily Depository Shipping Lists include all publications that are mailed each day from GPO's Library Programs Service to depository libraries. Arranged by item number, the lists also include the Superintendent of Documents number and titles for each entry on the list. Copies of all shipping lists are sent to each library to be used as a packing slip to check against depository receipts.

A separate numbering system is used for each of the formats of publications that are distributed in a physical form to the depository libraries.
