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.

Two new federal government blogs

Two new blogs appeared on the USA.gov Blogs from the U.S. Government page recently:

  • Arctic Chronicles, by Jessica Robertson, Public Affairs Specialist for the U.S. Geological Survey. She will be documenting her journey to the Arctic as she accompanies scientists on an expedition to map the seafloor.
  • The Energy Savers Blog, which aims to provide “a place for consumers to learn about and discuss energy efficiency and renewable technologies at home, on the road, and in the workplace.”

While the Energy Savers Blog is apparently provided by the U.S. Department of Energy’s Office Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE), it is hosted on a .com website. That creates a variety of problems for long-term access and preservation. (See more examples of government information on .com sites here.)

Both blogs have RSS feeds.
