Note on Government Printing Office (GPO) Datasets. The migration of federal government information from GPO Access into the GPO's Federal Digital System (FDsys) is occurring on a collection-by-collection basis and is expected to be completed in 2010. The below provides links to government datasets in FDsys when available. GPO Access datasets may be more comprehensive, will remain current, and continue to be available until the migration is completed. To view available sources and each source’s coverage, go to GPO Access and GPO FDsys.
