The General Services Administration‘s online library has saved the government tens of thousands of dollars in postage and printing costs, according to AOL Government.

The agency launched publications.usa.gov late last year to give users access to government publications via mobile devices.

According to AOL, 1.4 million publications were viewed in fiscal year 2011 using either Google Books, Scribd or publications.usa.gov.

GSA still operates and manages print requests from its site in Pueblo, Colo, but is aiming to increase online usage in fiscal 2012 by 10 to 20 percent from 2011 levels.

The site has 700 publications available online, which can be accessed with electronic devices capable of connecting to the Internet or opening and downloading a PDF for free.
