Task Force on a Digital Federal Depository Library Program

Introduction

To contribute to the continued evolution of the Federal Depository Library Program (FDLP), in FY 2021, in response to a recommendation of the Depository Library Council (DLC), GPO Director Hugh Halpern established a Task Force to study the feasibility of an all-digital FDLP. The 23-member Task Force has representation from the DLC, depository libraries of different types and sizes, library association representatives, Federal agencies, and GPO. The work is taking place throughout FY 2022 and in the first quarter of FY 2023. A final report with their recommendations will be available to the FDLP community in late 2022.
