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.

Our first community video

I’m to announce that Sarah Gewirtz, Reference/Government Documents Librarian at the Alcuin Library of St. John’s University/College of St. Benedict has produced the first documents promotional video I’m aware of that I didn’t put together.

Sarah’s first video is “You and Your USA”, a walk through civics pamphlets given to our soldiers and sailors in the 1950s. With Sarah’s permission, I’ve uploaded the video to YouTube and the Capitol Hill Broadcasting Network.

Sarah’s video and all the others we are aware of can be found on our videos page, along with links to the resources you need to produce your own documents promotion videos.
