Looking for a copy of the appendix to the budget of the United States? It’s now available on iTunes.
The Government Printing Office has signed an agreement with Apple, Inc. to sell some federal publications in e-book form for iPads, eReaders, PCs, and Macs.
“This is kind of where GPO is going,” said Gary Somerset, spokesman for the agency, which announced the agreement last week. “We’ve moved beyond ink or paper.”
GPO began its move into e-books with Google’s eBookstore in late 2010. The GPO also makes e-books available in partnership with Barnes & Noble, OverDrive, Ingram, Zinio, and other online vendors.
