ARL releases statement on recent USGPO decisions concerning FDLP

The Association of Research Libraries has released a statement calling upon the US Government Printing Office to reverse its recent, troubling decisions concerning the Federal Depository Library Program. ARL asked that GPO approve the University of Minnesota Libraries as the regional for the State of Michigan once it is designated by the relevant Senators, as well as approve and support the ASERL "Guidelines for Managing FDLP Collections in the Southeast Region." Such actions are consistent with GPO past precedent and, importantly, comply with provisions in Title 44. These types of collaborations and cooperative efforts are essential to the success of the FDLP both now and in the future
