Description

This handsome new volume provides a panoramic view of GPO, which opened its doors for business on March 4, 1861, as Abraham Lincoln was inaugurated as the 16th President of the United States. Keeping America Informed covers the agency's physical and technological growth in the Gilded Age, its reform during the Progressive Era, and its crucial role in supporting the Government's efforts to grapple with the Great Depression and two world wars. Post-World War II, this illustrated book descibes GPO's transition from traditional printing to digital technology. It also highlights the hugely significant role the agency has played in the dissemination of federal Government information through its publication sales and Federal depository library programs.
