GPO’s “govinfo” Access, Discovery, and Preservation Platform Now Out of Beta; Transition From FDsys Continues

From the Government Publications Office (GPO):

We’re excited to share that govinfo is now out of beta! While the predecessor site, FDsys, will remain available during this phase, we are one step closer to its retirement (planned for late 2018).


FDsys will continue to operate for a time so site and data users can update links, bookmarks, and any processes to point to govinfo instead of FDsys.
