Happy 75th to UCLA!

In a govdoc-l posting on December 21, 2007, Jan Goldsmith informed the depository community that the Federal Depository LIbrary at UCLA celebrated it’s 75th anniversary. Her post states how they celebrated:

The UCLA Library celebrates its 75th anniversary as a member of the Federal Depository Library Program this year.  We were designated a depository in 1932 by Senator Samuel Shortridge. Over the course of these past years, we have provided free access to federal government information for the University community and beyond.  In honor of our anniversary, Kris Kasianovitz and Jan Goldsmith, with the professional assistance of Ellen Watanabe and Dawn Setzer, mounted an exhibit in the Young Research Library lobby.  Gary Strong signed letters notifying all legislators whose district we serve, including our Senators and Congress representatives.  For more information regarding 75 years of collection and services of the Federal Government Documents at the UCLA Library visit our Anniversary web page, at: http://www.library.ucla.edu/libraries/yrl/depository_exhibit.html

Let’s hear it for UCLA for providing three quarters of a century of public service to the people of Los Angeles!
