Wednesday, April 01, 2015

Press release from the issuing company

WASHINGTON – The U.S. Government Publishing Office (GPO) names Laurie Hall the Managing Director of the agency’s Library Services and Content Management department.  Hall has been at GPO since 1985 and has worked with libraries in a variety of capacities during the last three decades.  In her new role, she will oversee the administration of four major, Congressionally-mandated programs: the Federal Depository Library Program (FDLP), the Cataloging & Indexing Program, the International Exchange Service, and the By-Law Program. Hall will provide management support for the implementation of strategic programs and operations in partnership with depository libraries and in collaboration with GPO business units and Federal agencies.  She will oversee about 100 employees and report to the Superintendent of Documents. 

“GPO congratulates Laurie on this well-deserved promotion.  Her expertise and knowledge of working with the library community and its issues is a tremendous asset for GPO,” said GPO Director Davita Vance-Cooks.  “GPO’s longstanding relationship with the Nation’s libraries is the backbone of carrying out our mission of Keeping America Informed on the three branches of the Federal Government.  The positions Laurie has held since joining GPO have greatly supported the digital transformation of key agency initiatives. I look forward to working with Laurie in her new leadership role.” 

Prior to arriving at GPO in the 1980s, Hall worked in a variety of corporate, public, and academic

libraries. She began working with the FDLP while working in the Government documents collection at Georgetown University, Lauinger Library. Hall earned her Bachelor’s degree in Art History and American Studies at the University of Virginia and her Master’s degree in Library Science at Catholic University in Washington, D.C.
