World War II: A Digital Library

The U.S. Government Printing Office (GPO) has partnered with Southern Methodist University (SMU) Central University Libraries to provide permanent public access to a digital collection of more than 300 U.S. Government publications distributed by GPO during World War II.

"Giving the public permanent access to this historic digital collection is an example of GPO’s mission to make Government documents available electronically to all Americans,” said Ric Davis, Acting Superintendent of Documents. “Partnerships, such as this one with SMU, are part of GPO’s ongoing efforts to work with the library community as we move forward with GPO’s digital transformation.”

The publications digitized by the SMU Central University Libraries include informational pamphlets, government reports, regulations, and instructions. The collection is accessible at http://worldwar2.smu.edu.
