The working group was established as a result of a DLC recommendation from their fall 2018 meeting, with the charge of exploring current and future needs related to digital deposit - both dissemination of content and acceptance of content by GPO.
This working group was created by GPO Director Halpern, at the request of the Council. It is charged with studying Federal depository libraries at affinity-focused institutions and other FDLs with unique needs and challenges that impact their ability to provide access to tangible and digital depository resources.
This is a standing subcommittee of the Depository Library Council (DLC) of the that provides a forum where DLC, Federal depository libraries (FDLs), and GPO may explore and discuss opportunities and proposals for collaboration in multiple areas of the program and management and development of depository collections. As the technological world develops rapidly and the physical landscape changes, CDSWG provides opportunities to coordinate thoughts, research, plans, and efforts to move the program forward into the future and to expand and enhance the services we provide to our communities and stakeholders.
