GPO Introduces New eLearning Tool To Conduct Virtual Training/Meetings With Federal Depository Library Program Members
From a Government Printing Office Announcement (PDF):
The U.S. Government Printing Office (GPO) has a new eLearning tool that allows the agency to conduct virtual trainings and host virtual meetings with members of the Federal Depository Library Program (FDLP). GPO attained this tool through a competitive procurement and can now provide libraries with training on GPO’s Federal Digital System (FDsys)…
This tool also allows GPO to customize training for specific audiences, record the training for future use, and enhance training with online discussions. In April, GPO conducted three virtual trainings using the eLearning tool and received positive feedback.
“With our rapidly changing digital environment, it is important that we provide the Federal depository library community with eLearning opportunities,” said Superintendent of Documents Mary Alice Baish. “Through this tool, GPO can equip libraries with the necessary training to help their communities access authentic, published Government information.”
