Sherman, A. M. (n.d.). As Gpo's Online Services Surge in Popularity, Dallas Bookstore to Close. Retrieved from

Excerpt: With nearly a quarter of a million titles available online and free of charge, and with public retrievals exceeding 30 million every month, GPO Access, a service of the U.S. Government Printing Office (GPO), has become one of the principal tools for providing public access to official U.S. Government information. As a result, the GPO has been phasing out its brick-and-mortar bookstore operations nationwide, an action that will significantly reduce costs. On Friday, March 14, GPO’s Dallas bookstore, in room 1C42 of the Federal Building at 1100 Commerce Street, will close its doors to the public, the latest in a series of changes marking the GPO’s transformation into a primarily electronic information disseminating agency. “The GPO is charting a course to remake itself as an agency committed to excellence and the use of new technologies in meeting the information demands of the 21st century,” said Public Printer of the United States Bruce R. James. “Our bookstores have provided a great service to the public, but the business of Government information production and delivery is changing, and we are not only changing with it, we will help lead that change.”
