GPO has occupied the corner of North Capitol Street NW and H Street NW in the District of Columbia for its entire history of producing America's most historic documents. As the Federal government's primary resource for gathering, cataloging, producing, providing and preserving published information in all its forms, GPO has disseminated millions of publications through the publications sales and Federal depository library programs. GPO continues to implement new printing and information technologies in response to the changing needs of our customers and the American public.
