Obtaining Federal Documents On-Line Dec,1995

The U.S. Government Printing Office(GPO) announces free use of its award-winning GPO Access online service beginning Dec 1, 1995. All Internet and dial-in users can now receive electronically, at no cost, the Congressional Record, Federal Register, congressional bills, and a growing list of important government documents on the same day of publication.

Until now, GPO Access has been free only to users on-site in some 600 of the nation's nearly 1400 Federal Depository Libraries and to remote users connecting through over 20 depository library "gateways." The new system now gives free and equal access to those utilizing a depository library and to those already linked by dial-up or Internet connections. Additional databases will be continually added.

Internet users can access the databases with a World Wide Web browser through the Superintendent of Documents home page at:

http://www.access.gpo.gov/su_docs/ or with WAIS client software.

Internet users can also telnet to swais.access.gpo.gov then login as guest.

Dial-in users should use a modem to call 202-512-1661: type swais and then login as guest.

General information on accessing GPO databases is available by:
