New this month:

GPO’s Federal Digital System (FDsys) is an advanced digital system that will enable GPO to manage Government information in a digital form.  It provides public access to and digital preservation of information submitted by Congress and federal agencies.  Information is being migrated from GPO Access which is expected to be complete in mid-2009.  Collections currently available on FDsys are:

  • Compilation of Presidential Documents (1993 to Present)
  • Congressional Bills (103rd Congress to Present)
  • Congressional Documents (104th Congress to Present)
  • Congressional Hearings (105th Congress to Present)
  • Congressional Record (1994 to Present)
  • Congressional Reports (104th Congress to Present)
  • Federal Register (1994 to Present)
  • Public and Private Laws (104th Congress to Present)

Information will be gathered through three methods:

  1. Files submitted by Congress and Federal agencies
  2. Information gathered from Federal agencies’ web sites (often referred to as “harvesting” information)
  3. Digital files created by scanning previously printed publications
