Press release from the issuing company

WASHINGTON - The U.S. Government Printing Office (GPO) and the Digital Public Library of America (DPLA) have partnered to increase public access to the Government information that GPO makes available through the Catalog of U.S. Government Publications (CGP). The DPLA is a repository of digitized content from American libraries, archives, and museums that is available for free to the public. Through the partnership, nearly 150,000 records from GPO's CGP will also be available to the public through the DPLA website. Examples of records include: the Federal Budget, laws such as the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, Federal regulations, and Congressional hearings, reports, and documents. GPO continuously adds records to the CGP which will also be available through the DPLA, increasing the discoverability of and access to Federal Government information for the American public.

"We look forward to continuing this strong partnership as the collection of Government information accessible through DPLA continues to grow."
