GPO dives into digital future

From an article entitled GPO dives into digital future and Begins testing automated management system by: Joab Jackson, GCN (Government Computer News) Staff Writer (http://www.gcn.com).

Quoting the article:

The Government Printing Office is ready to test the ambitious Future Digital System, a content management system designed to handle the many documents GPO publishes and posts for the rest of government.

The program’s goal is to digitize nearly every federal document published since the birth of the country. People can then search, view and download documents via a Web portal.

Historically, federal agencies would submit publications, and GPO would print for both the public and libraries. Although agencies will continue to submit publications, GPO will now work to disseminate the information electronically and in print.
