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.

Won’t Get Fooled Again: Day 8

With the House voting on the Obama’s economic recovery today, and the Senate taking up its consideration in the coming two week, I go back to my earlier themes about Talking Back to Democracy.

Somehow, someway — if libraries want to maintain any kind of relevance in this whitewater churn of rapid economic and political change — we are going to have to embrace some kind of proactive stance to put the importance of government information in front of our communities every day, week, month. Not enough institutions are “connecting the dots” for people out there….libraries (and especially government information librarians) do this.

See you on Day 9.
