Government Information

Contact: Gavin Baker

No-fee public access to government information is the foundation of an informed citizenry. The American Library Association has long fought to ensure that the public continues to enjoy this access. Libraries have demonstrated their effectiveness in delivering government information of all types to the public. From the Federal Depository Library Program to a variety of e-government services, including emergency response/recovery services provided during natural disasters like Hurricanes Katrina and Rita; libraries have continued to play to role of advocate for the public.
