Notes: The University of Delaware Library is a federal depository library and receives most of the publications included in the federal depository library system, i.e., those publications listed with Superintendent of Documents call numbers in ProQuest Statistical Insight. The Library has three microfiche full-text subscriptions, one covering all documents not included in the federal depository library system (non-depository ASI), another covering the state and privately published publications in SRI, and the third one covering the international and intergovernmental publications in IIS. These microfiche sets are located in the Morris Library Reference Room. (These three microfiche sets are cancelled as of 2005.)
