Happy birthday, GPO!

This month the Government Printing Office is celebrating its 150th anniversary. This is the institution that sends depository libraries like mine thousands of publications each year so that the public - not just our students - can be informed.

They have a lovely video which I can't embed but you can see here. Can you imagine an era when a government agency provided an in-house bowling alley for its blue collar workers?

A very old topic for illustrations, but a REALLY nice illustration, with tons of information. Thanks to Free Government Information for pointing it out.
