FIT's Evans Library Celebrates 50th Anniversary of Federal Depository Library
About the FDLP "The Federal Depository Library Program (FDLP) was established by Congress to ensure that the American public has access to its government's information. Since 1813, depository libraries have safeguarded the public's right to know by collecting, organizing, maintaining, preserving, and assisting users with information from the federal government."
As a member of the Federal Depository Library Program (FDLP), the Evans Library is dedicated to making information from and about the federal government available and understandable to all citizens of Brevard County.
There is a large collection of older print documents, and essential titles such as laws and regulations still arrive in print. However, the majority of current information is online.
Free access for all
- Everyone is welcome to use the documents collection within the library. You do not have to be a Florida Tech student, faculty, or staff member.
- You may check out most documents with a Florida Tech ID or community card just as you would a book. Exceptions are reference documents and periodicals, all of which are labeled "Reference" or "For Library Use Only."
- Non-university patrons may purchase a community card from the first floor Service Desk if they wish to check out documents, or may have their public library borrow a document through its interlibrary loan system.
