GPO Plans to Digitize and Freely Offer Every U.S. Government Document

The U.S. Government Publishing Office (GPO) is aiming to make every U.S. government document publicly accessible via the National Collection of U.S. Government Public Information, which houses all of the government’s public information products. GPO will digitize the documents, and the public can find them using govinfo and the Catalog of U.S. Government Publications (CGP). govinfo is a digital repository that has more than 2 million content packages that can be downloaded from the National Collection. CGP is a finding tool for more than 1 million records in the National Collection—users can get direct links to full documents and to Federal Depository libraries that offer the publication they’re looking for.

GPO notes, “To achieve its vision, GPO will identify, acquire, catalog, disseminate, digitize, make accessible, authenticate, and preserve all Government publications.”

For more information, read the press release.
