Circular Letter No. 693

July 23, 2008

TO: Printing and Publishing Officials of the Federal Government

SUBJECT:GPO Announces an Enhanced "Registry of U.S. Government Publication Digitization Projects"

The U.S. Government Printing Office (GPO) announces the launch of an enhanced version of the Registry of U.S. Government Digitization Projects at: <http://registry.fdlp.gov>. The Registry is designed to provide comprehensive coverage of all appropriate digitization projects that include U.S. Government publications, as well as serve as a locator tool for publicly accessible collections of digitized U.S. Government publications.

Features of the enhanced Registry:

  • Browse digitization projects by category or alphabetically by title.
  • Search the entire Registry or filter searches by category or fields.
  • Quickly access new and recently updated listings.
  • Utilize RSS feeds to keep informed of new and updated projects.
  • View listings by contributor.
  • Contact fellow digitization participants.
  • Recommend listings to others.
  • Report broken links.

GPO encourages any agency conducting or participating in digitization projects to contribute information about your planned, in process, and completed digitization projects to the Registry.

If your agency has a project to be added to the Registry, apply to become a contributor. Once an account has been created, users can add and edit projects. Additions and updates are reviewed by GPO staff prior to publishing. Fielded forms and moderated submissions help make the Registry an easy to use, reliable resource for U.S. Government digitization projects.

The enhanced Registry provides contributors the ability to:

  • Add and edit entries for digitization projects.
  • Access FAQs.
  • Modify account information.

To test the system prior to becoming a contributor, a demo account has been created. Visit <http://registry.fdlp.gov>, and enter username "demo" and password "demotest" (without including quotes). Please note than any listings added under this username and password will not be added to the Registry.

GPO would also like to encourage all agencies to consider placing a link to this valuable service on their Web sites. If you have any questions about the information contained in this Circular Letter, please contact the GPO Contact Center at contactcenter@gpo.gov.

Sincerely,
JIM BRADLEY,
Managing Director,
