Government Printing, Publications, and Digital Information Management: Issues and Challenges [November 8, 2017] [open pdf - 736KB]
"In the past half-century, in government and beyond, information creation, distribution, retention, and preservation activities have transitioned from a tangible, paper-based process to digital processes managed through computerized information technologies. [...] The Government Publishing Office (GPO) is a legislative branch agency that serves all three branches of the national government as a centralized resource for gathering, cataloging, producing, providing, authenticating, and preserving published information. [...] In light of the governance and technological changes of the past four decades, a relevant question for Congress might arise: To what extent can decades-old authorities and work patterns meet the challenges of digital government information? [...] This report examines three areas related to the production, distribution, retention, and management of government information in a primarily digital environment. These areas include:  the Joint Committee on Printing;  the Federal Depository Library Program; and,  government information management in the future."
