Olson library recognized for excellence
The Gordon B. Olson Library on the Minot State University campus has been recognized by the Federal Depository Library Program for excellence in providing federal government document services to Minot and surrounding areas. The GBO Library is the first library in North Dakota to be recognized by the federal government for excellence with its depository program.
"The library underwent its biennial review this past spring, and we were commended for our efforts with the depository program," said Stephen Banister, library director. "I am very proud of the efforts of David Iversen, cataloging and government documents librarian, and Donna Just, government documents assistant. They have done a great job over the last 10 years."
Congress established the Federal Depository Library Program 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. Depository libraries provide local, no-fee access to government information in an impartial environment with professional assistance.
