Welcome to the Lost Docs Blog. The purpose of this blog is to provide a public listing of documents submitted to the Government Printing Office (GPO)’s Lost Docs Reporting Form for what are called fugitive documents. Fugitive documents are federal publications which have NOT been cataloged and/or disseminated through the Federal Depository Library Program (FDLP).

Reporting fugitive documents to GPO allows them to be cataloged and archived so their contents are not lost to history. Not all federal documents are within the scope of the FDLP, but nearly any published federal document qualifies for GPO’s national bibliography.

The Lost Docs blog is a project of Free Government Information.
