To help Federal depository libraries meet the needs of efficient Government document stewardship in the digital era, GPO has established Preservation Stewards to support continued public access to historic U.S. Government documents in print format. Preservation Stewards contribute significantly to the effort to preserve printed documents and GPO welcomes all Federal depository libraries that wish to participate as Preservation Stewards.

“GPO welcomes these three libraries as preservation stewards and their commitment of maintaining Government information in multiple platforms,” said Acting GPO Director Jim Bradley.” I encourage more libraries to become part of this venture of preserving valuable print collections of Government information.”
