Report on the Assessment of Electronic Government Information Products
Westat, 1999 - Depository libraries - 78 pages
The Federal Depository Library Program (FDLP) has served and continues to serve the American public by ensuring localized access to Federal Government information. The mission continues to be as important today to the fundamental success of our democracy as it was when the FDLP was created. The FDLP's original mandate, to assist Americans regardless of economic, education, or geographic considerations, is one that must not be lost as we strategically and thoughtfully use the tools of the electronic age to enhance that mandate. The purpose of this study was to assess electronic medium and format standards for the creation and dissemination of electronic information products. The Superintendent of Documents will use the study to continue to plan and implement the transition to a more electronic FDLP.
