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.

BPE 2007 – Building docs collection with Archive-IT

At the recently closed Best Practices Exchange 2007, Kelly Eubank of the North Carolina State Archives presented how NC has made archived agency web pages available throught their use of the Archive-It tool.

The NC collection can be found at http://www.ah.dcr.state.nc.us/archives/webarchives/index.html.

Looking at all the collections available from the Archive-IT web sites, it seems like a number of state governments are using this tool:

  • Alabama – several collections
  • Arizona – several collections
  • Indiana State and Local Documents by Indiana University
  • Virginia – several collections by Library of Virginia
  • Michigan
  • Montana
  • Nebraska – County gov’t sites saved by Nebraska Historical Society.
  • North Carolina – several collections
  • North Dakota – several collections
  • Tennesee – several collections
  • Utah – several collections

Let’s hear it for all of the these state libraries, archives and universities trying to gather the information output of their state agencies.

FGI would warmly welcome any detailed statements from owners of the collections above, particularly about their future access plans.
