No, not here. For the last tumultuous month I have been a guest blogger over at Freegovinfo.info, that great site dedicated to maintaining and preserving free access to government information. I’ll be the guest there this month as well. I’ve made a few posts that I’m really proud of, about ALA resolutions, food recovery, identity document policy and, of course, the EPA library debacle. However, the area of government information, while very interesting to me, is not my specialty. Also, I am cleaning my room, like really cleaning it.
The way these two things are connected is like this: I am getting rid of some of the accumulated librarian schwag I have gotten over the past year. You can see the annotated schwag here. I would like some suggestions for good things to write about on FreeGovInfo as I am looking in my own usual places. I know that people around here are generally friendly and helpful anyhow, but I thought a few Read rings might sweeten the pot… or not. In any case, leave a comment with your suggestions — doesn’t have to be overtly political but should have some relevance to freegovinfo’s mission, needs to be about government information, not just goverment or just information — and I’ll pick a winner over the next few days. Winner gets mailed all that great schwag (I’ll email you for your mailing address) and gets a link to their blog/site/whatever in any post I eventually write. I may use more than one topic, but I’ll pick one winner just to not be mushy and equivocal.
Thanks for helping, and say hi to the FreeGovInfo people, they run a great site.
