Oregon Documents Depository Program
The Oregon Documents Depository Program supports government transparency & civic education by ensuring consistent and coordinated permanent public access to information published by Oregon state government. Access to Oregon documents is provided through Depository libraries. Depositories must retain all depository documents for a minimum of five years. As the official archive for Oregon public documents, the State Library will retain all titles permanently.
