North Carolina agency publications, both print and digital, are required by law (G.S. 125-11) to be submitted to the State Library of North Carolina’s State Publications Clearinghouse. See the Guidelines for State Agenices (PDF) to learn about the guidelines for submitting agency publications. Copyright forms are only needed for agency publications that have a copyright notice. (The majority of agency publications do not.) These forms are available in both PDF and Word format.
All agency publications in the State Government Digital Collection are automatically preserved and maintained by the library. For materials that are not sent to the library’s clearinghouse, here are links to information about preserving files:
