§ 143.8. Role of the State Library.
(a) Receiving publications. Under sections 201 and 425 of act of June 14, 1961 (24 P.S. § § 4201 and 4425) the State Library shall receive copies of all publications of all agencies of the Commonwealth for the maintenance of its own collection, for distribution to the depository collections, and for exchange with out-of-State libraries, the number of copies of each publication may be up to, but not exceed 250 copies.
(b) Listing publications. The State Library shall publish a periodic listing of Commonwealth publications received for its collection. The list shall be distributed to all public and academic libraries in the Commonwealth.
(c) Selecting publications. The State Library will select publications from those received for its own collection and arrange for copies of those selected to be shipped to the depository collections.
(d) Shipping publications. In most cases the Bureau of Publications, Department of Property and Supplies, shall be responsible for the shipment and delivery of Commonwealth publications to depository collections. When the availability of a publication becomes known to either the State Library or the Bureau of Publications, Department of Property and Supplies, the State Librarian may designate it as a depository item and request the Bureau of Publications to distribute it to the depository libraries. If the publication is not stocked by the Department of Property and Supplies, the State Library will seek to obtain a sufficient number of copies for its own collection and for distribution to the depository.
