I’ve been using government information – local, regional, state, federal, tribal, foreign, international – throughout the course of my professional career. Whether working as Foreign/International Legal Research Specialist at the University of San Diego or as law librarian at a legal services office on the Navajo Nation, government information has played a significant role in my work.
I believe unfettered access to government information is an important measure of democracy.
“[G]overnment information needs to be free” — We live in amazing times: I’m extraordinarily optimistic about the explosion of government information in digital formats and I’m terribly excited by preservation and access challenges in this fluid world we live in.
