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.

data.gov coming to an internet near you!

As we noted last month, the Federal government is moving forward with their plans for a May launch of data.gov. US CIO Vivek Kundra has said that this is an attempt to ensure that all government data ‘that is not restricted for national security reasons can be made public’ through data feeds. And just to remind everyone, Wired has launched a wiki for calling attention to datasets that should be shared as part of the Data.gov plan. Please go to the wiki and add those data sets that are near and dear to your hearts!

that is all.
