GPO Announces 2012 Federal Depository Libraries of the Year

From the Government Printing Office (GPO):

The U.S. Government Printing Office (GPO) recognizes the Newark Public Library in Newark, NJ, the Olin Library at Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri, and the University at Buffalo Libraries in Buffalo, NY, as the 2012 Federal Depository Libraries of the Year. GPO has selected these three libraries for their individual efforts to keep the public informed and to share their Federal government expertise with other libraries in their local region and across the nation.

The Newark Public Library has served as the regional library for the other Federal depository libraries in the state of New Jersey for nearly 50 years. It was selected for making the best use of limited resources and continuing to provide excellent public services. The Olin Library is being honored for providing training opportunities to other depository librarians in the area and for collaborating with their regional depository to ensure the needs of the populous St. Louis metro area are served. GPO is recognizing the University at Buffalo Libraries for maintaining several services which provide Federal depository libraries valuable assistance in processing U.S. Government publications received through the FDLP.

“I commend the Newark Public Library, the Olin Library, and the University at Buffalo Libraries for their contributions to the FDLP and outstanding commitment to serving their communities,” said Acting Public Printer Davita Vance-Cooks. “GPO thanks all of the Federal depository libraries for playing a critical role in providing and expanding public access to Government information.”
