        We have reached out to GPO in order to update the US Government Documents collection in the past but unfortunately were not able to establish a relationship in which we can update the collection on regular basis.
        Due to the above US Government Documents collection in SFX KB and in CZ KB is open for contribution- the community is welcomed to contribute according to guidelines https://knowledge.exlibrisgroup.com/Alma/Product_Documentation/Alma_Online_Help_(English)/Resource_Management/050Inventory/080Contributing_to_the_Community_Zone_%E2%80%93_Portfolios
        and update the bibliographic records associated with these portfolios in the Community Zone.
        We will be happy to reach out to GPO again and try to establish a relationship if you can point us to someone specific that will help.

        The United States Government Publications Office (GPO) catalogs bibliographic records and provides purl's for electronic government documents (monographs, serials and integrating resources...).

        There exists a CZ collection: US Government Documents but this only includes a selective list of journals. There seem to be a few other gov doc collections in the CZ but they don't have portfolios.

        Does Exlibris have plans to reach out to GPO to provide a gov docs collection in the CZ? It seems like there would be many Federal Depository Library Program (FDLP) members and other libraries (who subscribe to Marcive's Documents without Shelves) who would be interested in subscribing to and managing this collection in the CZ rather than importing records monthly into Alma.
