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.

Peter Suber reports on National Library of Medicine and National Science Foundation sites that limit access to indexing of those sites and a possible explanation for that limitation.

We’ve reported on this before, See: Do agencies exclude search engines?.
