GSA and GPO Partner With Google to Offer Free Government Publications

The U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) is working with the U.S. Government Printing Office (GPO) and GPO’s relationship with the Google Book Partner Program to make popular government publications available for free electronic download through Google. The program is making available 100 consumer-related Federal Government publications distributed through GSA’s Federal Citizen Information Center (FCIC) on Google Books.

The public can view and download PDF copies of these publications on desktops, laptops, and various ereaders. The FCIC plans to add more consumer publications to the program. The public can also order hard copies of the publications on Google Books and through the GPO’s Online Bookstore. The FCIC will coordinate delivery through GPO’s Public Documents Distribution Center in Pueblo, Colo.

“Our market research confirms that 74% of the public wants government information both online and in printed form. We want to embrace the changing environment and provide important consumer-related information where people want to consume it—on their computers, on their mobile devices, or on paper,” said Dave McClure, GSA associate administrator of the Office of Citizen Services and Innovative Technologies.

Since 1970, GSA’s Federal Citizen Information Center has been distributing Government consumer publications from GPO’s Public Documents Distribution Center in Pueblo on topics like staying healthy, understanding government benefits, managing finances, and saving money, avoiding scams, and identity theft. The center is responsible for processing and distributing orders for consumer publications. In the last 40 years, more than 800 million publications have been distributed worldwide.
