GPO and Sequestration

If you are wondering how sequestration might affect GPO Mary Alice Baish covers this in the most recent FDLP Connection.

"This would mean a cut of about $6.7 million to GPO’s FY13 appropriations, including approximately $1.9 M to the Salaries and Expenses (S&E) that funds the Federal Depository Library, Cataloging & Indexing, International Exchange and By-law distribution programs. The S&E cuts will impact the amount of print titles distributed to depository libraries, delay planned ingest of new content into FDsys, necessitate reductions in contracts (potentially including the Fall 2013 Depository Library Council Meeting and Federal Depository Library Conference), and more.
