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.

Take time out for Title Page TV

We’re not all work and no play at FGI. So, here is something we have been waiting for and are excited that it is now online. It is http://www.titlepage.tv/ and they describe it and their first episode this way:

There’s never been anything like it online. We bring together four of today’s top authors at a time for unscripted, passionate conversations about their work.

We couldn’t be more proud of our first episode. Richard Price, Colin Harrison, Susan Choi, and Charles Bock gave us an inside look at their latest novels, but the conversation didn’t stop there. Harrison taught us how to salvage a story by introducing a new character; Bock told us how his acclaimed first novel almost ended up in a drawer; Choi explained why she didn’t identify the home country of her main character; and the very organized Price admitted that he writes “outlines for my outlines” when preparing a novel.

Unlike many other sites, we do ask our visitors for an attention span. This first show runs to about an hour, but trust us — the time flies.

Today also marks the debut of our other features, including blogs, additional book recommendations, and interactive forums where you can start your own passionate conversations with fellow readers.

Enjoy!
