GSA TURNS TO GPO’S PARTNERSHIP WITH GOOGLE TO OFFER FREE GOVERNMENT PUBLICATIONS ONLINE

WASHINGTON-The U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) is working with the U.S. Government Printing Office (GPO) and GPO’s relationship with the Google Book Partner Program to make popular Government publications available for free electronic download through Google. The program is making available 100 consumer-related Federal Government publications distributed through GSA’s Federal Citizen Information Center (FCIC) on Google Books. The public can view and download PDF copies of these publications on desktops, laptops, and various e-readers. The FCIC plans to add more consumer publications to the program. The public can also order hard copies of the publications on Google Books and through the GPO’s Online Bookstore. The FCIC will coordinate delivery through GPO’s Public Documents Distribution Center in Pueblo, Colorado.

“GPO and GSA have been partners in distributing federal government publications to the American people for 40 years,” said GPO’s Business Products & Services Managing Director Herb Jackson. “GPO looks forward to expanding that partnership with Google in providing the public with free electronic access to popular consumer publications.”
