The Government Printing Office has signed an agreement with Barnes & Noble to sell federal eBooks, GPO said in a press release Tuesday. Approximately 30 titles are now available through the company’s Nook eReader.
“GPO continues to expand into the eBook market and make more Federal titles available to the public,” said Acting Public Printer Davita Vance-Cooks. “GPO is fulfilling its mission of Keeping America Informed by providing the public with multiple formats and outlets that they can use to access Federal Government information conveniently and economically.”
GPO also makes eBooks available in partnership with Google’s eBookstore, OverDrive, Ingram, Zinio and other online vendors.
