GPO Begins Search for Superintendent of Documents, Laurie Hall is Resigning From Position But Will Continue to Serve as Managing Director of LSCM

From the Government Publishing Office:

After serving for six years as the Superintendent of Documents, Laurie Hall has informed U.S. Government Publishing Office (GPO) Director Hugh Nathanial Halpern she will resign as Superintendent upon the selection of a successor. She will continue to serve as the Managing Director of Library Services and Content Management (LSCM). Hall has been serving in both of these positions since 2016.

“Laurie has gone above and beyond while serving in both of these critical roles for GPO and the library community. Laurie joined our team 36 years ago, and I support her decision to focus on the operational duties at LSCM and help in the transition of the Superintendent of Documents role,” said GPO Director Hugh Nathanial Halpern. “We will begin a nationwide search for the next Superintendent of Documents. I am grateful Laurie will still be an integral component of our partnership with the Federal Depository Library Program community and providing the American people continued access to the workings of our democracy.”

“Since I joined GPO in 1985, GPO, with the help of the library community, has made great strides in increasing access to Government information. The American public can use mobile devices to quickly and easily access information, while still having access to tangible publications at FDLP libraries,” said Superintendent of Documents Laurie Hall. “I appreciate Director Halpern for allowing me to hand the baton to a new leader while I  continue to serve and collaborate with the library community.”
