Fogler Library named Preservation Steward

Raymond H. Fogler Library at the University of Maine has been selected as a Preservation Steward by the United States Government Publishing Office.

In becoming a Preservation Steward, Fogler Library has made a commitment to retain a complete collection of the “Public Papers of the Presidents.”

To become a Preservation Steward, libraries partner with the U.S. GPO in an agreement to retain and preserve specified resources. A federal publications depository since 1907, Fogler Library has been a regional depository since 1963 — one of only 50 libraries with this distinction.

The U.S. GPO’s acknowledgment of the partnership is online.
