Kate Zwaard discussed how the GPO's Federal Digital Systems (FDsys) is helping the agency meet its mission of preserving and providing access to authentic Federal government information. FDsys forms the backbone of GPO's digital content workflow, giving the agency the tools it needs to preserve and provide access to digital content free from dependence on specific hardware or software. Currently in public beta with select titles, the goal of the agency is to ingest a comprehensive collection of publically available Federal information products.
