Five Libraries Partner With GPO to Preserve Government Information

WASHINGTON —Merrill Cazier Library at Utah State University has signed a Memorandum of Agreement with the U.S. Government Publishing Office (GPO) to become a Preservation Steward, and four other libraries are adding materials to their current Preservation Steward collections.
