Beginning summer 2023, we are updating our guides. You may notice changes to the look and feel of our existing guides. If you have any questions or experience any issues, please contact askGPO.



This guide includes non-GPO resources useful to staff managing Federal depository operations and services. There is a plethora of resources available from Federal depositories, other libraries, and library organizations to help you learn more about and manage a Federal depository operation.
