FGI promotes free government information through collaboration, education, advocacy and research.

Need Some Planning Calendars

First, thanks to the FGI team (especially James) for allowing me to “guest blog” last month and for the invite to continue posting I’m going to take him up on the offer.

Second, planning calendars are all over the web. On ResourceShelf, we are constantly updating this post with all sorts of calendars, From election dates (around the globe) to diplomatic events to scientific meetings to space events and a lot more. We hope you find it useful.

The Washington Daybook

A very useful source for calendar info regarding events here in D.C. (from Congressional events, to statistical releases to think tanks issuing reports) is the Washington Daybook from Find-Inc. The Daybook is also published each morning in the Washington Times at this URL:


If you look near the top or bottom of the page, you can even have the page spoken to you using the Washington Times “Click-2-Listen” service.

Here’s an example.

Links to the last 5 daybooks are found at the bottom of the page.

If you’re interested in archiving each Daybook page for the long term, you might want to consider using a web clipping service like eSnips that offers 5GB of free online storage and sharing space.

Btw, on our ResourceShelf site, we’ve collected a number of planning calendars that might be of interest from the BBC, UN, APTV, and other sources.
