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.

Video of Docs2.0 GODORT preconference

Last month, at ALA Annual Conference 2008, FGI volunteers participated in the GODORT preconference “Docs2.0: emerging web technologies for the government documents community”. At long last, we’ve got the video of all the speakers up and available!! It’s also available on the internet archive (slightly better quality video). You can now access all the slides, video, and notes from the preconference at the GODORT wiki.
