For a brief period, PURLs with “” in the PURL address were not functioning.

We are happy to report that this issue has been resolved. Thank you for your patience as we worked to correct the issue.

Subject: [FEDLIB] OFF TOPIC: GPO PURLs No Longer Working?


This is not directly FEDLINK related, but I’m not part of any FDLP listserve, so I apologize for the departure.

Every time today that I’ve tried to use a GPO PURL with the as the host, I’ve gotten a “Not Found” error. They were working last week as far as I can tell. An example is I asked our Depository Librarian, but she hasn’t heard anything about the old Access PURLs being cut off, and they’re still active on the GPO catalog site.

Does anyone know what’s going on?
