There are just two weeks left to apply to take part in the second LSCM Pilot Project. Applications are being accepted through March 31, 2022. Both regional and selective libraries are encouraged to apply.

Pilot Project Opportunity 2 is scoped as cataloging, item-level inventory, condition assessment, and digitization of a collection of 200-300 Federal Government print publications focused on a state, region, common theme, or topic, and preferably those without records in the Catalog of U.S. Government Publications.

  • Suggested collections may include, but are not limited to:
    • Publications issued by regional Federal offices or agencies.
    • Publications in the areas of voting, civil rights, women’s suffrage, or tribal rights.
    • Publications on environmental or geographic region-based topics, such as waterways, land rights, energy sources, or establishment of national parks.

To apply for the opportunity, download and complete the application. Next, log in to your library’s FDLP account in askGPO. Under ‘More,’ click on Pilot Project Application. Complete the required fields, and then upload the completed Pilot Project Application as an attachment.

For more information, view the pre-recorded webinar presented on February 16, LSCM Pilot Projects: the Application Process.

LSCM Pilot Projects are opportunities for FDLP libraries to collaborate with GPO in areas such as cataloging, collection inventory, condition assessments, and preservation. These jointly-conducted projects are envisioned to benefit the larger FDLP community and ultimately to enhance access to the National Collection of U.S. Government Public Information.
