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.

And in other news…

Blake over at LIS News has published his "10 Non-librarian Blogs to read in 2008"  which were nominated by his blog readers.  On the list are many of our own favorites, including BoingBoing, Slashdot, Lifehacker, and Open Access News.

A belated shout out to Prof. Kip Currier and the terrific students in his Government Information Resources and Services class at the University of Pittsburgh School of Information Science.  I spoke to the class this week about finding federal legislative information and they admitted to being followers of FGI blog – and they knew I’m a guest blogger this month!  Keep reading, y’all, and please add your comments, we love to hear from you!  Especially since you are learning how to be govdocs librarians in the 21st Century, you have a unique point of view that is valuable to all of us who work with government information.
