Government Reference Publication

Excerpt: With nearly a quarter of a million titles available online and free of charge, and with public retrievals exceeding 32 million every month, GPO Access, a service of the U.S. Government Printing Office (GPO), has become one of the principal tools for providing public access to official U.S. Government information. As a result, the GPO is phasing out its 13 remaining brick-and-mortar bookstore operations outside Washington, DC, an action that will significantly reduce costs. On Tuesday, July 1, 2003, the GPO’s New York bookstore, in room 2-120 of the Federal Office Building at 26 Federal Plaza, will close its doors to the public, the latest in a series of changes marking the GPO’s transformation into a primarily electronic information disseminating agency. “The GPO is charting a course to remake itself as an agency committed to excellence and the use of new technologies in meeting the information demands of the 21st century,” said Public Printer of the United States Bruce R. James. “Our bookstores have provided a great service to the public, but the business of Government information production and delivery is changing, and we are not only changing with it, we will help lead that change.”
