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.

Background on copyright of government documents

We’ve added a new page to the FGI Library, an excerpt from a Federal Judicial Center published book on copyright law explaining how copyright law has been applied to federal, state and local documents.

So please have a look and have a discussion, either here or on the library page.
