What is “Free Use” of US Government Depository Library Publications?

“Depository libraries shall make Government publications available for the free use of the general public, . . .”  (44 US Code Sec. 1911).   Private law school libraries receive many thousands of dollars worth of publications for free – at taxpayers’ expense.   In 1998 I tried to use the Southwestern School of Law library but was turned away at the door.  The library is for students only – no public access.  Click the link below to see my correspondence (personal information redacted) regarding this issue.
