Uses and Use Restrictions

The United States Government Printing Office, Information Dissemination Department (Superintendent of Documents), is an authorized sales agent for information published by the various departments and agencies of the Federal Government.

Approximately 5,860 titles covering nearly every field of interest are available for purchase at nominal prices.

If purchasers order 100 copies or more of one publication to be mailed to a single address, they will receive a 25 percent discount.

Bookdealers, regardless of the quantity purchased, will be allowed a 25 percent discount when the publications, pamphlets, periodicals or subscription services are mailed, delivered, or forwarded to the dealer's normal place of business.

No discounts are allowed when the publication, pamphlet, periodical, or subscription service is mailed to a third party (unless in quantities of 100 or more), or on those periodicals and subscription services which fall into a special pricing category as noted in, "U. S. Government Subscriptions" which is described below.

Generally speaking, there are no restrictions on reprinting or quoting from U. S. Government Publications, as the code of laws of the United States provides that they cannot be copyrighted.

However, Government publications occasionally contain copyrighted material which was used with permission of the copyright owner, and publication in a Government document does not authorize any use or appropriation of such copyright material without the consent of the owner.

As the Government Printing Office serves merely as a printing and distribution agency for Government publications and has no jurisdiction over their content or subject matter, it is suggested that the originating department or agency or its successor be consulted prior to reprinting or quoting from any given publication.

In those instances in which permission to reprint material from Government publications is granted, customary credit should be given to the Government Department which prepared the material.

By law, every publication printed through the GPO, whether it is designated for sale or not, must be cataloged and indexed.

The "Monthly Catalog of United States Government Publications" is produced to fulfill this obligation.

The approximately 5,860 titles sold by the Superintendent of Documents include about 358subscription services.

These subscription items are listed in the Superintendent of Documents, "U. S. Government Subscriptions, "http://bookstore.gpo.gov/collections/subscriptions/index.jsp which is revised quarterly.

All titles sold by GPO are listed in maybe browsed by subject at htt://bookstore.gpo.gov.

The Sales Product Catalog list the entire inventory.
