The goal of the Alaska State Publications Program is to make State publications freely available to Alaskans. This program is mandated by Alaska Statute 14.56, the State Library Distribution and Data Access Center. The benefits of the program are numerous:
To locate a State publication, first search the agency's website (for more recent publications) and/or the Alaska Library Catalog. The catalog indexes tangible State publications held by Alaska depository libraries, and digital publications held in the Alaska State Library's new State Publications Digital Library. If you do not find the publications you are seeking in the catalog, search the Alaska State Government Website Snapshots.
At any time, contact the Alaska State Library for assistance.
The Alaska State Library ships copies of tangible State publications to depository libraries about every one to six months, With each mailing, we produce a shipping list. The shipping list also includes newly cataloged digital publications. A paper copy of each shipping list is included with the mailing. Digital copies of shipping lists are available through the shipping list link above.
Although strictly speaking, the Alaska State Court Law Library and Alaska Legislative Reference Library are not depository libraries under the State Publications program, they are also good sources for state publications about law and legislation.
Please contact your local library or the Alaska State Library Reference Desk for assistance locating Alaska State publications.
