Library and Open Information

Alberta Depository Library Program

The Alberta Government Library, with the support of Alberta Queen’s Printer, manages the Alberta Depository Library Program. The Program provides the public with access to Alberta government publications.

Print publications and legislation are sent to full depository libraries. Partial depository libraries can also  request copies of these.

Online publications and legislation are available in the Open Government Portal at Depository libraries may print or download online government publications for their collection.

Listings of government publications published since 1996 are available as open datasets in the Open Government Portal.
