Pricing of GPO Sales Publications.
Schwarzkopf, LeRoy C.
This report analyzes the pricing policy of the Government Printing Office (GPO) for publications sold to the public. It discusses the sharp rise in prices for GPO sales publications from November 1972 through 1975. This is a detailed report which expands on the summary report prepared by the author as chairman of the Pricing Subcommittee, GPO Users Survey. This survey was conducted in April 1976 by the Committee on Information Hangups (Washington, D.C.) and sponsored by the Government Information Services Committee, Special Libraries Association. The report also discusses related topics of federal policy on user charges, dichotomy of free and sales publications, and role of the issuing agencies and the Government Printing Office in publications management.
