We at freegovinfo.info want to help GPO have a faster and more complete picture of public DLC meetings and other GPO sessions at library association events.
So, we’re initiating “Grassroots Proceedings,” where we are asking you, the documents communities to contribute your notes and impressions of PUBLIC FDLP-related events. If you’re fortunate enough to have private lunches with the Public Printer or the SuDoc, please DO NOT send us those notes. This isn’t a game of “gotcha journalism.” We only want to better publicize public sessions to avoid situations like the Midwinter flap where GPO’s plans went unclarified for months. The more information the government information community has, the better partners we can be with GPO.
You can contribute in two ways. You can either send your notes and impressions to firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know whether we can use your name and institution when we post the notes to our “Grassroots Proceedings” page. Or once the “Grassroots Proceedings” page is set up, you will be able to directly contribute comments.
When you send us material, make note of the session that you are commenting on. For the Spring DLC meeting, please look at the agenda, for session names. This will help us to match the right comments to the right sessions.
GPO staff past and present, are welcome to send us comments too, either officially or unofficially. Unofficial comments will not be attributed.
Please help us better a faster and hopefully better picture of events that inform and shape the depository community!
