Chrome Browser Issues for Some GPO Websites

Last update on: |

The U.S. Government Publishing Office (GPO) is aware of an issue with accessing some GPO websites when using the Chrome web browser.

We are working to correct the issue, and in the meantime, we recommend using Mozilla’s Firefox or Microsoft’s Internet Explorer.

Sites that may be impacted are:

  • Catalog of U.S. Government Publications (CGP)
  • MetaLib
  • Federal Depository Library Directory
  • Permanent, where many of the CGP PURLs resolve
  • Ben’s Guide to the U.S. Government

Thank you for your patience and cooperation during this time, and we apologize for the inconvenience.
