Texas State Publications Depository Program - Publications on Microfiche
The Texas State Publications Depository Program in cooperation with the Imaging Services Department of the State and Local Records Management Division offers many state publications for sale on microfiche.
Documents announced in Texas State Publications were converted to microfiche and are available for sale. Exceptions to this policy included: documents with copyright protection, documents that were more than 25% colored paper or colored printing, oversized documents such as maps, legislative appropriations requests, and documents that were distributed by the Program to depository libraries throughout the state. One microfiche sheet usually contains approximately 96 images of pages measuring 8.5" x 11"; most documents required only one sheet of microfiche, but multiple sheets were required for lengthy publications.
Documents available on microfiche were announced via
- Special Series Microfiche Order Form
- Quarterly Microfiche Order Forms
The Special Series Microfiche Order Form was last published in June 2003. It provides a list of documents that appear in series, including: Opinions, Letter Opinions, Open Records Decisions, and Open Records Rulings from the Attorney General; General and Special Laws of the State of Texas from each biennial Legislature; Texas Register from the Secretary of State's Office; and Docket Indexes (1983-1991), Dockets (1983-present), and Advisory Committee Files (1982-1986) from the Supreme Court.
The Quarterly Microfiche Order Forms were published through 2002. Those published between 1996 and 2002 are available below. Each form lists available documents according to their appearance in the monthly issues of Texas State Publications. The Texas State Publications ceased publication in December 2010.
Microfiche documents cost $1.00 per sheet of microfiche, plus shipping and handling and any applicable sales tax. Price quotes should be requested from the Imaging Services Department.
