GPO Access Site Shuts Down March 16

The U.S. Government Printing Office has announced that the GPO Access website will be shut down and retired on March 16.  The Federal Digital System site (FDsys) will become the new default source for federal government publications.    Outdated links from GPO Access will redirect users to the FDsys site for the next year or so.  The e-CFR will not be found on the FDsys site, but will continue to be available at ecfr.gpo.gov. 

This post from The Goodson Blogson (Duke Law Library) provides more information about efforts to preserve historical government information through digital preservation projects.
