In 1997, a depository
libraries system was introduced. The objective was to have
at least one library in every OSCE participating State that
would have a significant collection of major CSCE/OSCE conference
documents and public information material.
66 depository libraries
have been designated by participating States or have subscribed
individually. This group
is supplied once a month with hard copies of all the documents
on the list of new releases. Currently,
43 countries (including the USA, Canada and Japan) have
one or more OSCE depository libraries, which are continuously
supplied with new materials.
Each month, these
depository libraries receive an average of 40 newly released
documents as well as monthly issues of the Newsletter, Permanent
Council and Forum for Security Co-operation journals and
decisions and other public materials released by the Secretariat
and OSCE Institutions.
