The U.S. Government Printing Office (GPO) today turned the switch on for its Federal Digital System (FDsys). According to GPO, the system provides a one-stop site to authentic, published government information.
FDsys allows GPO to receive information from federal agencies in all three branches of government and create a repository for permanent, public access. More than 154,000 documents are currently accessible, with additional documents being added daily.
FDsys offers search capabilities for users such as: searching by Congressional committee, a member of Congress, keyword, and date. FDsys will replace GPOAccess in mid-2009, and releases with additional functionality will occur throughout the next several years.
