Good news for public domain afficionados

The US Government Printing Office (GPO) is embarking on a program to digitize all old government publications and putting them online.

GPO is working with the library community on a national digitization plan, with the goal of digitizing a complete legacy collection of tangible U.S. Government publications. The objective is to ensure that the digital collection is available, in the public domain, for no-fee permanent public access through the FDLP.

or more details see the Report on the Meeting of Experts on Digital Preservation: Metadata Specifications on the GPO Website.
