A new Federal Depository Library Program (FDLP) partnership between the U.S. Government Printing Office and the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis has been established to provide public access to content in the Federal Reserve Archival System for Economic Research (FRASER) service. The FRASER service, developed by the Research Division of the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis, provides scanned images of historical economic statistical publications, releases, and documents.
The underlying purpose of FRASER is to provide complete data series presented in preliminary, revised, and final releases. The documents included are limited to government documents focused on national banking and economic data, ranging from 1896-1955 Banking Statistics to 1948-2005 Economic Indicators. Many of the publications were originally distributed to depository libraries through the FDLP. The Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis will continue to update the FRASER service and fill in missing documents as they become available. Access the FRASER service. GPO will provide a back-up site for archival copies of certain digital preservation masters.
