  • Speakers:
    • Melissa Fairfield, Planning Specialist, U.S. Government Publishing Office (GPO)
    • Ashley Dahlen, Outreach Librarian, GPO
  • Learning Outcomes: This webinar will introduce Federal depository libraries to the Draft Regional Online Selections Policy, which allows regional depositories to select just the online format without being required to select a tangible version. The draft policy will be tested using two titles, the Federal Register and the Congressional Record (Daily), once four geographically dispersed Print Selectors have been secured. Regional depositories will learn how this new policy can assist them in seeking greater collection management flexibility. Any depository library selecting the print format will learn how their contribution to the initiative is critical.
