New! Federal Document Repositories Decision Framework -- Seeking Comments
GPO is seeking comments from the Federal depository library community on the
draft document, "Federal Document Repositories: Decision Framework by
Tangible Repository Type." This document was prepared by the Center for
Research Libraries for the U.S. Government Printing Office and it will be
discussed at the upcoming Depository Library Council meeting.
The decision framework is intended for evaluating future proposals for
shared repositories for tangible Federal government documents. It will
enable the Superintendent of Documents to evaluate the qualities, resources,
and capabilities of potential repository facilities and their governing
organizations, and to identify the configuration of accessible, light, and
dark repositories most appropriate to ensure the persistent archiving and
public availability of tangible federal documents.
"Federal Document Repositories: Decision Framework by Tangible Repository
Type" is available from the FDLP Desktop at:
