The U.S. Government Publishing Office's core mission, Keeping America Informed, dates to 1813 when Congress determined the need to make information regarding the work of the three branches of government available to all Americans. This is the inherent function of government which GPO carries out for Federal agencies on behalf of the public. The GPO is the Federal government's primary resource for gathering, cataloging, producing, providing and preserving published information in all its forms.

Below are links to press releases, news reports, high resolution images for downloading, B-Roll and sound bites for downloading and a ten minute video chronicling the beginnings of the agency to the digital changes of the future.
