GPO Fugitives Talk Now on OPAL Archive

The Government Printing Office (GPO) has posted their recent session on reporting fugitive documents at their OPAL archive:

Helping GPO Identify Fugitive Publications presented in January 2010 by Joe McClane, Manager of Content Acquisitions, and Linda Nainis, Acquisitions Librarian, U.S. Government Printing Office.

If you have any interest in the fugitive document problem — agencies publishing information that slips between the cracks — I highly recommend this session. This is an informative and frank discussion about GPO’s efforts to address this problem and how librarians and other interested govinfo types can help contribute to the solution. Or at least one solution among many.
