GPO Task Force Studies the Possibility of an All-Digital FDLP

The director of the U.S. Government Publishing Office (GPO), Hugh Nathaniel Halpern, has appointed a task force to look into the feasibility of making the Federal Depository Library Program (FDLP) all digital. The press release notes that 97% of all federal publications are now born digital. The task force will determine whether it will be possible to proceed with an all-digital FDLP, and if so, it will make recommendations for how to implement and operate the new program.

On the task force are 23 members who come from the Depository Library Council, the Depository Library Community, federal agencies, and library associations. The task force will deliver a final report to Halpern by December 2022.

For more information, read the press release.
