GPO & DPLA Partnering to Make Government eBooks More Accessible

GPO and the Digital Public Library of America (DPLA) are partnering to make Government eBooks more accessible. Currently, GPO does not have an e-reader platform for its users to view the various formats of eBooks. DPLA Exchange, in addition to selling copyrighted materials, has a venue called Open Bookshelf. It provides a platform where openly-licensed eBooks are available for the general public. Through Open Bookshelf, GPO can provide a service model to meet the needs of modern-day users. There are over 500 eBooks available on the Catalog of Government Publications (CGP); partnering with the DPLA eBook program will help GPO to continue to achieve its goals. Learn more on our DPLA eBook project page.
