Excerpt
Excerpt: With more than a quarter of a million titles available online and free of charge, and with public retrievals exceeding 32 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 is phasing out its 13 remaining brick-and-mortar bookstore operations outside Washington, D.C., an action that will significantly reduce costs. On Friday, August 1, 2003, the GPO’s Pueblo bookstore, at 201 West 8th 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.” In addition to providing online access to Government information via GPO Access, the GPO is actively transitioning its Federal Depository Library Program, serving 1,200 libraries nationwide, to a predominately electronic basis. GPO also offers an online bookstore. The online bookstore’s sales catalog includes all titles available for sale and can be searched by publication title, subject, or keywords. All titles can be ordered securely online using Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover/Novus credit cards, and customers have a rapid delivery option via FedEx.
