GPO Expands Its Initiative to Make Government Documents More Discoverable
The U.S. Government Publishing Office (GPO) is entering into a second Library Services & Content Management Pilot Project Initiative to help Federal Depository Library Program (FDLP) libraries make government information more discoverable by the public. For the initiative, GPO staffers visit partner libraries across the U.S. to assess the condition of their documents, do item-level inventories, digitize government information collections, and more.
The first initiative, with Merrill Cazier Library in Utah, began in April 2022. This next partner is the University of North Texas Libraries, where GPO staffers will catalog and digitize 200–300 military technical manuals dating from World War II. GPO plans to make the documents available online in 2024.
For more information, read the press release.
