Welcome to the FDLP Academy

The goals of the FDLP Academy are to:

  • Inform and educate the Federal depository library community about U.S. Government information resources.
  • Assist Federal depository libraries in better serving their communities.
  • Advance Government information literacy.

Through this collaboration between the U.S. Government Publishing Office (GPO), Federal depository libraries, and other Federal agencies, FDLP library partners and the public will be better engaged and empowered with U.S. Government information. FDLP Academy, a service of GPO, enhances U.S. Government information knowledge through:

  • Events and conferences coordinated by GPO.
  • Webinars and webcasts on a wide variety of Government information topics, presented by GPO, other Federal agencies, or from the FDLP community.
FDLP Academy Mission:

Create and deliver enhanced educational opportunities to the FDLP community by fostering collaboration, by facilitating knowledge sharing, and through the application of new methods and use of multiple mediums.
