Endangered Accountability: A DLF-Sponsored Webinar on FOIA, Government Data, and Transparency

April 21, 2017 1:00 PM (EDT)

Join members of the Digital Library Federation’s new working group on Government Records Transparency and Accountability for a live conversation about government data and records transparency. In this webinar, we’ll dig below the headlines to talk about the current state of FOIA, the difference between “records” and “data,” and what, actually, is at risk in this current moment. Featuring presentations by Alex Howard of the Sunlight Foundation, Denice Ross from New America, and Deputy Director Nikki Gramian and Management Analyst Amy Bennett from the National Archives FOIA Ombudsman’s Office.
