GPO Announces Recall of Books From Depository Collections

From the Federal Depository Library Program:

Numerous volumes of historic military registers have been identified as containing Personally Identifiable Information (PII). The U.S. Department of Defense notified the U.S. Government Publishing Office (GPO) that these volumes should no longer be in the Federal Depository Library Program (FDLP). Please remove the specified volumes from your depository collections immediately and destroy them. The Superintendent of Documents issued an official notification letter about this requirement for all Federal depository libraries on July 6, 2017.
