The U.S. Government Publishing Office (GPO) has recognized the UNT library system as a 2015 Library of the Year for its leadership, innovation, and commitment to providing free public access to federal government information.

For more than two decades, UNT has worked with the GPO to digitize and preserve government documents and online information, a project that launched before other libraries began their own efforts. As part of the Federal Depository Library Program in 1997, UNT and the GPO partnered to start the UNT Cyber Cemetery, a digital repository for preserving and providing access to defunct governmental agencies and commissions’ publications and websites.

Since its launch, the Cyber Cemetery has brought the UNT libraries notable partnerships and accolades, and it’s a go-to resource for faculty and students. The UNT Digital Library, which is currently ranked 9th in North America, is home to the Cyber Cemetery.
