GPO’S FEDERAL DIGITAL SYSTEM ACHIEVES MILESTONE

Press Release – “The U.S. Government Printing Office’s (GPO) Federal Digital System (FDsys) has achieved the milestone of 200 million retrievals since the Web site went live in January 2009. FDsys is a system that lawmakers, librarians, students, and the public can use to access authentic, published information on the Federal Government. Approximately 380,000 Government documents across 41 collections are available for free use on FDsys. Retrievals are measured by the number of times content is viewed or downloaded from FDsys. Examples of content found on FDsys include: the post-President Kennedy’s assassination tape recordings, President Nixon’s Watergate grand jury testimony, the Budget of the U.S. Government, the Congressional Record, Federal Register, Code of Federal Regulations, and congressional bills, hearings, and reports. GPO is continually adding content and working with agencies on new collection opportunities.
