Gil Baldwin Selected To Direct National Bibliography Program Planning
Gil Baldwin has been appointed to the newly created position of Director, National Bibliography Program Planning, Program Planning and Coordination Office. He will be responsible for policy development and planning for all of GPO's metadata and cataloging efforts, and for coordinating the development of bibliographic program direction and scope, including human, fiscal, information technology, and other program resources.
Mr. Baldwin began his career with GPO in 1973, and since then he has held a variety of staff and management positions involving the Federal Depository Library Program. In his most recent position, Director of the Library Programs Service, he was instrumental in the development of the FDLP Electronic Collection, and provided guidance and direction as the FDLP moved to a mostly electronic depository library program. He also helped bring the issues of Permanent Public Access and Digital Preservation to the forefront of the depository community. A native Virginian, he received the B.A. in American History from the College of William and Mary, and the M.L.S. from Florida State University, and pursued additional postgraduate work in Library and Information Science at the Catholic University of America.
