From an FDLP E-Mail:

The U.S. Government Printing Office (GPO) has received the final report from Ithaka S + R (Ithaka), who was contracted to develop practical and sustainable models for the Federal Depository Library Program (FDLP). GPO appreciates the comments that were submitted by members of our community during Ithaka’s study of the FDLP. We plan to build on these comments as we continue our future visioning and modeling process.

GPO has reproduced an archived version of the Ithaka study Web site in PDF format on the FDLP Desktop and has posted the previously released draft documents, public comments, and final modeling report to GPO. We look forward to obtaining comments and feedback from more participants in our depository library network. We plan to use these comments as part of the foundation to build on as we continue our future visioning and modeling process.

The deadline for submission of comments is September 16, 2011.

Comments submitted through this site will be made available on the FDLP Desktop in preparation for the Thursday, October 20, 2011 day-long discussion, “Creating Our Shared Vision: Roles and Opportunities in the FDLP.” We also encourage you to join us for the Fall 2011 Federal Depository Library Conference and DLC Meeting.
