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.

Day in the life of documents librarians

For several years now, a number of librarians have gotten together to do “Day in the Life” blog posts. These efforts are documented at the Library Day in the Life wiki. They are now up to Round 5. I noticed that this round has several documents/government information librarians participating. As of this writing, they were:

  • Elizabeth Psyck – Government Documents Librarian/Liaison Librarian – Grand Valley State University, Allendale, Michigan
  • Lynda Kellam – data services & govt info librarian, uncg
  • Shari Laster – Government Documents/Reference Librarian, University of Akron (Ohio)

If you’re one of our non-librarian readers, I strongly encourage you to read one or more of these “day in the docs” blogs to get a feel for what government information professionals do.

If you’re a docs librarian not on this list and the project intrigues you, there is still time to join. Please leave a comment here if you do.

Disclosure: I too will be participating in Library Day in the Life, although I’m not currently working in government documents and even though library work is only part of my current official duties.
