GPO Access will be going away soon as the U.S. Government Printing Office rolls out the Federal Digital System (FDsys), an advanced digital system that will enable GPO to manage Government information from all three branches of the U.S. Government. Learn about the new system and its features, what content is available through it, and search strategies. Not only is FDsys a powerful tool for the public to access online, authoritative Federal information, but it also serves as a preservation repository for the content and a content management system for Federal agencies.

Sponsors: This session was sponsored by the SLA Philadelphia Chapter, and co-sponsored by the SLA Legal Division and by the DUSLA student chapter at Drexel University.
