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.

Help Build A World Health Resource

On April 9, 2008, Eamon Duffy posted the following announcement to govdoc-l that we at FGI felt was deserving of broader coverage:

The McGill Library Global Health Resource Wiki


The McGill Library has created a Global Health Resource Guide to promote collaboration and to share and organize knowledge about resources within the McGill community and beyond.

This resource guide was created as a wiki using MediaWiki software so that as many people as possible would be encouraged to both use the guide and add resources to it. All members of the McGill community – students, faculty, clinicians, researchers and staff – can add resources to the guide by logging in with their McGill user ID. Anyone in the international community with an interest in global health is welcome to use the guide for finding global health information and resources. If you are from an academic community outside of McGill, we encourage you to participate and contribute to the wiki. Contact us for a user ID if you would like to contribute resources or information to the guide.

To obtain more information, to comment or pass on suggestions for content, or to request a User ID to add resources and content, please contact one of these McGill librarians:

Eamon Duffy Government Information Service
Louisa Piatti Nahum Gelber Law Library
Jim Henderson Life Sciences Library
Deborah Meert Macdonald Campus Library

Contact information for the above librarians can be found at http://wikisites.mcgill.ca/GlobalHealthGuide/index.php/McGill_Library_Global_Health_Resource_Guide:Contact_us

If you’re affiliated with an academic community or library and have some time to assist building this resource, we encourage you to help. It is one more way the the librarian community can show how it adds value to information.
