Braunstein Appointed to GPO Depository Library Council

Posted in Announcements, People

On March 9, 2011, the United States Government Printing Office (GPO) sent out a press release announcing the appointment of five new members to the GPO Depository Library Council (DLC) for the 2011-2014 term.  One of the five appointees named was LSU Assistant Librarian Stephanie Braunstein.  The DLC acts in an advisory role in establishing policy matters for the Federal Depository Library Program (FDLP) and works closely with the Public Printer of the United States and the Assistant Public Printer/Superintendent of Documents.

Braunstein, as Head Government Documents/Microforms Librarian at Middleton, is the coordinator for LSU’s partnership with the FDLP, a program that allows libraries to receive, without charge, official publications from the U.S. government.  LSU Middleton is also designated as a Regional Depository Library, which means that it receives all publications from the program and has oversight of more than 15 smaller depositories (known as Selectives because they are allowed to select only those publications that are useful for their patrons’ needs).

In the press release, current Public Printer Bill Boarman is quoted as saying, “I am honored to appoint these talented individuals to the Council and look forward to their advice on how to advance the mission of the FDLP . . . GPO has a strong partnership with the depository library community, which is also the foundation of GPO’s mission in disseminating Government documents and information to the public.”

Braunstein begins her term in June and will be seated with DLC at the Fall Depository Library Conference in Arlington, VA later this year.

Sigrid Kelsey is the Director of Library Communications and Publications at the LSU Libraries.

    Even as far south as Louisiana, winter nights are long and chilly, but in homes all across the state, Christmas trees bring a little light and joy. When did the tradition of decorating evergreens d...
  • #TBT The 1971 fall commencement ceremonies were the first to be held in the newly completed LSU Assembly Center, now the Pete Maravich Assembly Center. Previous commencement ceremonies were held in the John M. Parker Coliseum, Tiger Stadium, the Gym-Armory, and the Greek Theater. 1099 degrees were awarded that year including 30 law degrees and 84 PhDs. Although called a “midyear” commencement, it was the first to be held right after the end of the fall semester. Previous midyear commencements were held in mid-January. Commencement programs from the very first in 1869 can be found at Hill Memorial Library. Congratulations, fall graduates!

  • It's finals week and students in this shot from c. 1960 crammed and agonized over exams just as they do today. Notice that no one in this photo, taken in Dodson Auditorium, has an electronic device. Study hard and good luck!
