GPO Partners with Google to Offer Federal E-Books
The U.S. Government Printing Office (GPO) and Google have entered a partnership to offer the public, for the first time, federal government titles in an e-book format. The titles will appear on Google’s recently launched Google ebookstore, which can be searched, purchased and read on any connected device with a capable browser. Currently, the public can search for titles such as the appendix for the Budget of the United States, Fiscal Year 2011, Remembering the Space Age, Borden’s Dream (a history of Walter Reed Army Medical Center). GPO has approximately 100 titles in the catalog and will continue to add titles in the next several months, which will include the first volume of the Public Papers of President Barack Obama and the Budget of the United States, Fiscal Year 2012.
