Task Force on a Digital Federal Depository Library Program


To contribute to the continued evolution of the Federal Depository Library Program (FDLP), in FY 2021, in response to a recommendation of the Depository Library Council (DLC), GPO Director Hugh Halpern established a Task Force to study the feasibility of a digital FDLP. The 23-member Task Force had representation from the DLC, depository libraries of different types and sizes, library associations, Federal agencies, and GPO. The work took place throughout FY 2022 and in the first quarter of FY 2023.
