- Kathryn Bayer, Senior Outreach Librarian, FDSS, LSCM, GPO

This session will outline the process of moving toward an all-digital or mostly-digital depository. From the initial conversations with your regional librarian and GPO, to the practical details of refining your item selection profile, weeding your physical collection, and planning for ongoing service as a depository focused on online resources, we’ll discuss all aspects of the transition. Our panel of presenters will offer multiple perspectives: those of two regional librarians, selective depository coordinators, and an FDLP outreach librarian.
