Public Printer Goes to the Hill—GPO at a Crossroads
by Barbie E. Keiser
On May 11, the Public Printer of the U.S., William Boarman, and three others testified before the Subcommittee on Oversight, Committee on House Administration, U.S. House of Representatives. The Government Printing Office (GPO) is the printer of record for Congress and the federal government. As he called the meeting to order, Phil Gingrey (R-Ga.), subcommittee chairman, characterized his hope for the hour: Given our technology-based society, how will GPO continue to serve the Congress and government, and how will GPO transform itself into the modern-day information repository and primary-source publisher it should be? What work will GPO be performing in the future and how? What should its production look like years from now?

Book Recommendation Services
by Paula J. Hane
My family and friends have long been valued sources of recommendations for that next good read. We eagerly trade paperbacks, and we don't get bent out of shape if our preferences don't always match someone's recommendations. Amazon's recommendations have proven helpful to me over the years (Customers who bought this also …), and sometimes it highlights items I might not have thought of checking. But with the increased interest in ebooks and the phenomenal sales of e-readers, it's worth knowing about some other very helpful sources for book recommendations. There's a growing number of them popping up, and I was quite surprised to find so many when I started digging. Each has its own special strengths, so you might want to check out several.
