At ALA’s Annual Conference, please join an open forum being hosted by the ALA Committee on Legislation’s Government Information Subcommittee and the GODORT Legislation Committee to discuss the future of the Federal Depository Library Program (FDLP) on Saturday, June 28, from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. at the Hilton Anaheim, California Pavilion C (listed as the COL Subcommittee on Government Information in the program).
The topics to be covered in the meeting include: a brief overview of the current status of the FDLP program by Government Printing Office (GPO) representatives Rick Davis and Cindy Etkin; a brief overview of ALA policies concerning GPO and the FDLP over the past 20 years; and an open forum on the future of the FDLP which will focus on helping articulate and shape ALA’s areas of agreement on the issues and appropriate next steps.
Specific tools to help get up-to-speed on the issues being discussed include a GIS wiki, and the recently released GPO draft report, “Regional Depository Libraries in the 21st Century: A Time for Change?”
