GPO Will Help Libraries Make Government Information Collections More Discoverable

The U.S. Government Publishing Office (GPO) started “a Library Services & Content Management (LSCM) Pilot Projects Initiative to help Federal Depository Library Initiative (FDLP) libraries make Government information more discoverable for the American public. Through the pilot initiative, GPO teammates will visit libraries across the Nation to assess the condition of tangible documents, conduct item-level inventories, catalog, and digitize Government collections. GPO selected Utah State University’s Merrill Cazier Library as the first LSCM pilot initiative participant.”

GPO continues, “In the first Pilot Projects Initiative, GPO will catalog and digitize 200–300 documents, pamphlets and other materials from the U.S. Department of War from World War II (1941–1945). In future projects, GPO will digitize publications in the areas of voting, civil rights, women’s suffrage, tribal rights, the environment, the establishment of national parks, and more. GPO will announce selections for the second project in late spring or early summer of 2022.”
