President Barack Obama has signed a bill that formally changes the Government Printing Office‘s name to the “Government Publishing Office.”

The change is meant to reflect the organization’s increasing work to provide federal agencies and the general public access to electronic government information, GPO said Dec. 17.

“Publishing defines a broad range of services that includes print, digital and future technological advancements,” said GPO Director Davita Vance-Cooks.

GPO was established in March 1861 to produce information sources for the U.S. government’s executive, legislative and judicial branches, as well as to offer publicly accessible data through the Federal Digital System and the Federal Depository Library Program.
