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.

What is the Federal Depository Library Program?

Non document-librarian readers of FGI might be interested in this fact sheet about the Federal Depository Library Program. The fact sheet is somewhat dated (2001?), but still gives a decent idea of what the program is and why it benefits citizens around the country. Briefer, but more recent information about the system can be found at http://www.gpoaccess.gov/fdlp.html.
