Enhanced Electronic Content Services

Enhanced Electronic Content Services is powered by GPO's Federal Digital System (FDsys), an easy-to-use searchable public website which guarantees content integrity and ensures long-term preservation of your content.

In a digital environment, users expect Federal content to be:

  • Accessible almost immediately and easy to find.
  • Authentic and verified to be the correct version.
  • Preserved for future generations.

GPO’s Enhanced Electronic Content Services meet all of these user expectations – and more.

Searchable Public Website

  • Content is published to GPO’s public website, FDsys, which currently contains more than 50 collections of Federal content and receives more than 122,000 unique visitors per week.
  • Content is organized and maintained in a robust content management system.
  • Extensive metadata combined with modern search technology ensure the highest quality search experience utilizing:

Content Integrity

  • GPO maintains integrity for all file formats through generation of a SHA-256 algorithm that is stored in a PREMIS metadata file.
  • GPO ensures that users can determine integrity of stored PDF documents by using digital signature technology to add a visible Seal of Authenticity.
  • GPO’s mechanisms to guarantee authenticity assure end users that published content is official, complete, and unaltered since being disseminated by GPO.

Long-Term Preservation

  • Original content files are maintained in GPO’s limited-access OAIS compliant preservation repository.
  • All files are regularly backed up at GPO’s separate Continuity of Operations (COOP) site.
  • The COOP remote disaster recovery site retains near-real-time data synchronization and five-minute failover capability with full content availability and system functionality.

Learn More About Preservation

GPO provides additional services to enhance your content and ensure a seamless process by:

  • converting content into other file formats;
  • creating metadata and breaking up large documents into smaller sections for precise searching; and
  • processing content based on customer’s selection of a range of submission and display options.
