Public printer Bill Boarman, archivist David Ferriero and director of the Federal Register Ray Mosley recently presented President Barack Obama with the first volume of the “Public Papers of the President, Barack Obama” in an Oval Office ceremony.

The U.S. Government Printing Office (GPO) works with the National Archives and Records Administration's (NARA) Office of the Federal Register (OFR) to produce the document.  The 1,084-page volume is published by OFR and is comprised of a forward by President Obama, public writings, addresses, remarks, and photographs that occurred from January 20-June 30, 2009.  The “Public Papers of the President” is published twice a year and covers a six-month period.

The first volume also can be found in electronic form on GPO's Federal Digital System. Hard copies can be purchased through GPO's Online Bookstore.

"It was an honor to represent and showcase the work of the men and women of GPO when presenting this publication to President Obama," says public printer Bill Boarman.  "GPO, NARA, and OFR did a tremendous job working together in producing this important publication for the president and the American people in electronic and tangible formats."

The series includes volumes documenting the administrations of Presidents Hoover, Truman and Eisenhower to Obama.  The publication is edited and annotated by OFR and is the authoritative record of presidents used by scholars, researchers and the public.
