Chicago: DePaul U. Library Designated as “Digital Only” Member of Federal Depository Library Program (FDLP)
From the Government Printing Office:
The U.S. Government Publishing Office (GPO) designates DePaul University Library in Chicago, IL as the new digital-only member of GPO’s Federal Depository Library Program (FDLP). The university will provide access to an online collection of thousands of Federal Government documents to share with the public, faculty, and students.
“Government information is critical to teaching, learning, and scholarship across the curriculum,” said DePaul University Librarian Scott Walter. “Increased access to digital data sets created by Federal Government agencies and the tools to use them will allow us to provide greater support for faculty and students in our swiftly-growing programs in Data Science.” The commitment to provide Government information services to members of the public, Walter continued, “will also allow our library to contribute in new ways to DePaul’s community engagement programs and its efforts to deepen our connection to the city of Chicago.”
Digital-only members of the FDLP do not receive print materials from GPO.
