FGI promotes free government information through collaboration, education, advocacy and research.

Praise for GPO and “bootleg” withdrawal

As James Staub noted a few days ago, GPO has posted crystal clear audio of the recently closed Spring 2007 Depository Library Council meeting on a new podcasts page.

GPO’s page is a true podcast since they offer a subscription through iTunes. Thanks GPO!

Comparing their page with our podcast page, they have everything we had with the exception of the LOCKSS session. They also had several other sessions our recorder couldn’t get to.

Therefore, as a gesture of goodwill, we have pulled our less than perfect audio files from our podcast feed with the exception of the LOCKSS session. We congratulate GPO on its fine and swift work in making the work of the Council available to the entire community.

Assuming this is the way and schedule that GPO plans to provide future DLC/FDLP conference content, we will cease our duplication of audio effort, though we’ll still continue to post participant notes.

Keep up the great work!
