Hoduski and McKnelly on Regional Depositories and Title 44

A new paper by Bernadine E. Abbott Hoduski and Michele McKnelly addresses the proposal to revise Chapter 19 of Title 44 “to allow a more flexible structure” for Regional Depository Libraries.

The proposal was made in Regional Depository Libraries in the 21st Century: A Time for Change? (draft) A Report To The Joint Committee On Printing.

Hoduski and McKnelly conclude that the proposal “will do more harm than good and alternatives that will improve public access should be considered.”
