Our mission

Free Government Information (FGI) is a place for initiating dialogue and building consensus among the various players (libraries, government agencies, non-profit organizations, researchers, journalists, etc.) who have a stake in the preservation of and perpetual free access to government information. FGI promotes free government information through collaboration, education, advocacy and research.

Fall 2005 Depository Library Council Meeting October 16-19, 2005

Free Government Information is once again providing “grassroots proceedings” and audio recordings of sessions from the Fall 2005 Depository Library Council meeting in Washington, DC at the Hyatt Regency Washington. The meeting will begin Sunday, October 16, 2005 and end on Wednesday, October 19, 2005. This meeting is especially important because there will be many discussions about the vision for the future of the FDLP!

If you are either attending or presenting at this conference, we want to hear from you! If you are interested in providing notes or audio recordings of any of the sessions below, please drop me a line at dnlcornwall “at” alaska.net.

If you will be presenting at the Fall DLC Meeting, we would be honored to host any handouts you have. Just e-mail them to dnlcornwall “at” alaska.net with a note of which session your handout(s) belong to and we will post them within a day of receipt.

While we welcome general comments on the Council meeting, or notes from ANY public session, we are most interested in providing content on the sessions below:
