Government Documents Round Table of Ohio

Ohio GODORT Spring Meeting, May 6, 2005
State Library of Ohio, Columbus, OH

Agenda

Our spring meeting, held once again at the State Library, should be an exciting one as we discuss the latest proposal by the Government Printing Office to cease distribute of tangible materials (with a few exceptions) and to convert the FDLP to a more fully electronic service. Our own George Barnum will be present to give us more details. And as we look at ways to make our depository services even more useful in the online environment, Jay Burton of the State Library will introduce us to the new E-Learning Center.
