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.

64 Days to Government Information Liberation

Another day of transition, spending most of it talking about the future of government information and the federal depository library system. Now waiting to go home and think about everything — again.

One note of interest — this is the first time in years (and I am talking about the time before 2001) — that I felt there was an edge of hope to the future of a robust, accessible, permanent and freely available system of government information distribution. It isn’t just the technology — its the people I met that reminded me again of why we do this. We might disagree on the details of structure and purpose, but the goals are astoundingly similar.

Jet lag strikes.

See you on Day 63
