The Needs and Offers (N&O) list is a tool used by depository librarians for collection development purposes. Libraries seeking to dispose of publications withdrawn from their collections may place publications with other depositories, and libraries seeking publications missing from their depository collections may post lists which can be viewed by other depositories, using the N&O service. Depository libraries may offer their discards here, after gaining approval for the publication deaccession from their Regional library, in accordance with 44 U.S.C. § 1912 and the state or region's depository publication weeding procedures.
Any list of publications not yet over five years old, those superseded or officially substituted, must include a note to this effect.
Lists are only informational, and GPO assumes no responsibility for the physical exchange of publications. Lists will be posted for no less than 30 days and then removed; it is recommended that libraries maintain a copy of their lists for their record.
Preference goes to South Dakota and regional libraries.
