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.

Shari Laster: BOTM for February, 2009 and July, 2010

Shari Laster is the government documents/reference librarian for University Libraries at the University of Akron in Akron, Ohio. She earned her MSLS from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Her interest in the world of government information was sparked by her work as a student assistant at what is now the Kelley Center for Government Information at Rice University, where she discovered that governments produce nifty, pervasive, and useful information. Other professional interests include metadata, intellectual property law, and good design.

[update July, 2010: besides all of those other things listed above, Shari has just been named to Depository Library Council for a 3 year term (2010 – 2013)!]
