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.

FOI disclosures via RSS

Here’s news from the UK that may be of interest here as well. Martin Stabe at UK Freedom of Information Act Blog reports that the UK Department of Education and Skills as well as the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital NHS Trust now are using RSS to distribute freedom of information act disclosures. If US agencies were doing that, we librarians could collect those feeds and create a robust collection of FOIA information for our users!
