Online FDLP training is available for Federal Depository Library participants via OPAL (Online Programming for All Libraries), an interactive Web-based meeting and conferencing service.

The live events are held in GPO rooms or the OPAL auditorium and allow participants to interact via voice-over-IP, text chatting, and synchronized browsing. In addition, training events are archived to allow those unable to attend a live event to replay the event at their convenience.

The first FDLP OPAL session, on the functionality of the Catalog of U.S. Government Publications (CGP), is available for viewing in the GPO OPAL archive. Archived sessions include the streaming audio, text chat, and presentation slides.

Watch for announcements of other GPO online educational sessions in the coming months, including live, interactive sessions, as we develop future programs. All sessions will be archived on the GPO OPAL site, so you will have convenient access at all times.
