FDsys offers Digitized Treasury Documents

The Government Printing Office (GPO) and the Treasury Department have partnered on a pilot project to make historical digitized content from the Treasury Library available on GPO’s Federal Digital System (FDsys).

Through this pilot project, historical Treasury Reporting Rates of Exchange listing the exchange rates of foreign currencies based on the dollar, will be available for the years 1956-2005.

Over the next year, additional historical documents within the Treasury’s library collection will be made available on FDsys, including the Official Register of the United States: 1829-1861; 1879-1959, a publication with information about the Federal workforce, including the name of every employee, their job title, state or country of birth, the location of their post, and their annual salary.

GPO is excited to work with the U.S. Department of Treasury and provide permanent public access to these historic collections,” said Acting Public Printer Davita Vance-Cooks. “GPO serves as the official link between the American people and the Federal Government. We value our partnerships with other Federal agencies to enhance the collections on FDsys and provide the public with greater access to Government information.”
