Digital Content Contributor Partnerships, Collaborating with GPO, and Building the National Collection


  • Jessica Tieman, U.S. Government Publishing Office (GPO), Digital Preservation Librarian
  • David Walls, GPO, Preservation Librarian
  • Sara Sessler, Albertsons Library, Boise State University

GPO endeavors to enhance our repository’s collection through the priorities within our Collection Development Plan. Your Federal depository library could help us in our mission by contributing digitally imaged publications by becoming a Digital Content Contributor. Digital Content Contributors provide digitally imaged Federal Government publications that meet GPO specifications for ingest into GovInfo. The Contributors share a copy of content that they have digitally imaged from their library’s own collection for ingest into the repository as a contribution to the National Collection of U.S. Government Public Information on GovInfo. GPO provides ongoing access and preservation of the digital content. GPO works alongside partners to provide guidance and assistance at every step of the way from digital imaging, to file organization, to metadata creation, and easy file transfer. If you have questions or comments about these guidance documents, if you are planning a digital imaging project and would like assistance with planning the project or working with a commercial vendor, or if you would like to contribute content that is already digitally imaged to GovInfo, this webinar is for you.
