GPO is launching FDLP Data Manager (FDM). FDM is the replacement tool for Documents Data Miner (DDM), which was formerly created and managed by Wichita State University. FDM can be used to help manage FDLP collections, specifically: 

  • Create custom shipping lists.
  • Review what has shipped to depositories dating back to 1997.
  • Review the List of Classes, including library selection profiles with complete title, SuDoc, format, item number information.
  • Download MARC records, including custom catalog record sets based on library item selection profiles.

The tool’s report features can be used in various FDLP projects, such as the creation of withdrawal or offers lists and retroactive cataloging. Any library staff who work with catalog records for FDLP material, process depository shipment boxes, or manage the FDLP item selection profile are encouraged to attend this training session.
