Government Publishing Office

The U.S. Government Publishing Office (GPO) wants to make every non-secret government document digitally available via the govinfo website and the Catalog of U.S. Government Publications. GPO said it will gather these documents from the National Collection of U.S. Government Public Information.

“GPO’s pledge to make every U.S. Government document publicly accessibly is another way GPO is keeping America informed and is an important pillar supporting our democracy,” said Hugh Nathanial Halpern, director of GPO.

The office said it will identify, gather, digitize, authenticate and catalog these publications for public access. The govinfo website is a digital repository compliant with the International Organization for Standardization.
