GPO and Google Team Up 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“, and “Borden’s Dream” (a history of Walter Reed Army Medical Center).

GPO has about 100 titles in the catalog and will continue to add titles in the next several months.

GPO has a treasure trove of publications to keep Americans informed on the workings of the Federal Government and the agency is excited to offer them through another avenue,” said Public Printer Bob Tapella. “I congratulate GPO’s Publication and Information Sales team for their hard work in making this partnership with Google possible by using the latest technology to reach a larger audience.”
