New FDLP Library Opts for Digital Only Government Information from GPO

Thursday, September 04, 2014

Press release from the issuing company

WASHINGTON - The U.S. Government Printing Office (GPO) designates Sitting Bull College Library as the first digital-only member of the Federal Depository Library Program (FDLP). The library is opting to meet their community's needs by developing an online Government information collection. In choosing this format, the library will not receive print materials from GPO. Sitting Bull College is a Native American tribally-managed college that was granted land-grant status under an act of Congress with the mission to serve their community through higher education programs. Sitting Bull College Library serves the information needs of its students, faculty, and staff, the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation community, and the American public in North Dakota and South Dakota. Through the FDLP, GPO works with approximately 1,200 libraries nationwide to provide the public with access to authentic, published information from all three branches of the Federal Government in print and electronic formats.

"Libraries have always been the cornerstone in helping GPO carry out its mission of Keeping America Informed on the three branches of the Federal Government," said Public Printer Davita Vance-Cooks. "GPO welcomes Sitting Bull College Library into the FDLP.  As GPO continues to transform by providing information in digital formats, we are pleased to partner with the library community to expand access to Government information in their communities."
