Federal Depository Library Program: Issues for Congress
R. Eric Petersen (au); Jennifer E. Manning (au); Christina M. Bailey (au)
Congress established the Federal Depository Library Program (FDLP) to provide free public access to federal government information. The programäó»s origins date to 1813; its current structure was established in 1962 and is overseen by the Government Printing Office (GPO). Access to government information is provided through a network of depository libraries across the U.S. In the past half-century, information creation, distribution, retention, and preservation has expanded from a tangible, paper-based process to include digital processes managed largely through computerized information technologies. This report discusses possible concerns as they affect FDLP; they may also extend beyond the program to a variety of contexts related to the management of government information in tangible and digital forms. Issues include: maintenance and availability of the FDLP tangible collection; retention and preservation of digital information; access to FDLP resources; authenticity and accuracy of digital material; robustness of the FDLP Electronic Collection; and the costs of FDLP and other government information distribution initiatives. Table. This is a print on demand report.
