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.

65 Days to Government Information Liberation

Today is going to be one of those slow moments in this long slog to liberation. Still mulling over some of the ideas raised in earlier responses to my posts. While I organize my thoughts, I am pleased to see that government information and its implications continue to get mentioned in the popular press — especially the Plum Book.

I am also pleased to see that elements within the American Library Association are making an effort to link e-government services and libraries. See the ALA wiki.

Indeed, the historic connections between traditional depository library service/practice and the evolving suite of possible library e-government service remains considerably under-developed. I hope more of us can jump in and contribute to the conversation.

See you on Day 64
