Implications of Harmonizing the Future of the Federal Depository Library Program within E-Government Principles and Policies
Shuler, John A.; Jaeger, Paul T.; Bertot, John Carlo
Government Information Quarterly, v27 n1 p9-16 Jan 2010

This collaborative national public information program between local libraries and the national government, if it is to survive beyond its second century of service, must overcome profound challenges within a rapidly evolving complex of e-government policies and principles. The FDLP can (and must) find a way to serve its traditional values--permanent and public access to government information--that allows for growth and change within the demands of a dynamic electronic environment between the governors and the governed.
