GPO moves collections to cloud

GPO pushes three public catalogs to the cloud

The Government Publishing Office has moved three of its Integrated Library System public websites to the Amazon cloud, delivering faster search results and content downloads for users, especially during peak traffic times.

The three sites are the Catalog of U.S. Government Publications, the Federal Depository Library Directory and MetaLib.

This move follows GPO’s recent migration of its email system to the cloud; agency official say it was the first legislative branch agency to do so.

“Moving these sites to the cloud demonstrates our ongoing commitment to leverage the best technology tools to support GPO's mission of keeping America informed,” GPO CIO Chuck Riddle said.

GPO produces and distributes information products and services for all three branches of the federal government and provides public access to that information through its website and its partnerships with 1,150 libraries in the Federal Depository Library Program.
