The Printing Act of 1895 brought about the transfer of the Superintendent of Documents to GPO, a reform that capped years of effort by Congress to devise an efficient and effective system for ensuring public access to Government information. In 1813, the 13th Congress enacted a resolution providing for the distribution of documents on a regular basis to such institutions for the Congress and "every future Congress." This was the statutory antecedent to what was to become the Federal Depository Library Program (FDLP). Libraries that participate in the FDLP provide access and reference services to members of the public seeking Federal government information assistance.
