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.

Twitter, Facebook, and Scholarly Communication

An article in Scholarly Kitchen does a good job of comparing and contrasting Twitter and Facebook and addressing the utility of Twitter for scholarly communication. As the article says, “…a network that is open and content-centric has advantages. This is particularly true, for example, for scholarly and scientific communications.” I think there is a parallel here for government information providers.
