In the coming weeks, the U.S. Government Printing Office (GPO) will begin releasing results from the FDLP Forecast Study. The Study queried Federal depository libraries about their pressing issues, goals, and viewpoints, and asked them to identify initiatives and needs.
- Data Reports will present qualitative and quantitative analysis of the Study responses by individual Library and State Forecast question. These reports will be released in phases.
- Working Papers will present more in depth analyses of results by six overall topics. These will include GPO’s planned responses to issues and needs and will be released in phases.
- The FDLP Forecast Study Final Report will present an overall compilation of results, findings, and recommendations from Library and State Forecast Questionnaires; this will also encompass results from State Focused Action Plans and a Literature Review.
These elements will inform the FDLP National Plan that will guide the future of the FDLP, based on a shared vision between GPO and Federal depository libraries.
Further information on the FDLP Forecast Study, including a project description and background documentation, is also available.
