UNT Libraries celebrates milestone with lecture by government official

Mary Alice Baish, assistant public printer and superintendent of documents at the U.S. Government Printing OfficeUNT Libraries will mark its 65th anniversary in the Federal Depository Library Program with a free lecture at 11 a.m. Jan. 19 by one of the agency’s leading officials.

Mary Alice Baish, right, assistant public printer and superintendent of documents at the U.S. Government Printing Office, will speak about The FDLP: Partnership for Public Access — Past, Present and Future.

The free lecture will take place at the Willis Library, first floor Forum. A reception will begin at 10:30 a.m.

Baish leads the U.S. Government Printing Office in providing public access to government information published by the U.S. Congress, federal agencies and the federal courts, working with more than 1,200 federal depository libraries nationwide. Before being named as assistant public printer and superintendent of documents at the office in January 2011, Baish was director of government relations for the American Association of Law Libraries.

The Federal Depository Library Program was established by Congress in 1813 to ensure that the American public has free access to information published by all three U.S. government branches and federal agencies. The U.S. Government Printing Office administers the program.

The UNT Libraries became a federal depository library in 1947. In the Government Documents Department in Willis Library, librarians provide assistance to those who are seeking electronic resources, microfiche, microfilm, journals and publications on hundreds of thousands of topics.
