Documents: Old, New, Borrowed, & Blue

March 16, 2015

The GPO celebrates its 154th Birthday with a new name and a new logo.

The Porter Henderson Library has been a federal depository library since 1964, carrying on the proud tradition of making available to the public federal government documents distributed by the Government Printing Office. Last year, Congress and the President changed the then 153rd year OLD agency’s name to the Government Publishing Office to better reflect its use of NEW digital technologies to distribute information. While the majority of new federal documents are currently available online and can be located using U-Search and RamCat, many government documents are still available in print and housed in the Library’s basement.  Most of these physical documents can be BORROWED just like the majority of print books in the Library.

To reflect the name change and the 154th anniversary, the agency has a new logo. The logo appears against a background of three shades of black, gray and BLUE. Be sure to be looking for the new logo at ASU’s library!
