The services provided by Federal depository libraries (FDLs) and administered by the U.S. Government Printing Office (GPO) are unique and essential to the American public, and together, GPO and FDLs can spread the excitement of utilizing FDLs to the fullest.
Many critical calls for help with marketing the services and benefits of FDLs and the FDLP have been made by the Depository Library Council and depository librarians throughout the country. In response to these calls, GPO is proposing a variety of marketing strategies and activities.
The FDLP Marketing Plan is designed to empower Federal depository libraries with the tools they need to market their valuable services to all audiences in the most effective way possible.
