distributed to depository libraries specifically designated by law

and to libraries designated by Senators, Representatives, and the

Resident Commissioner from Puerto Rico, as the case may be, with

justification of the necessity for the additional designation. The

justification, which shall also include a certification as to the

need for the additional depository library designation, shall be

signed by the head of every existing depository library within the

head of the library authority of the State or the Commonwealth of

Puerto Rico, within which the additional depository library is to

designations shall be transmitted to the Superintendent of
