The American Association of Law Libraries (AALL) and is hosting this annual national webcast during Sunshine Week. This year’s event, “The Road Forward on Open Government,” will feature two panels that will assess the Administration’s progress on President Obama’s commitment “to creating an unprecedented level of openness in Government.”
The first panel will focus on the challenges and opportunities that the Administration’s Open Government Initiative have created at the Federal level. The second set of panelists will discuss the ways in which technology is being used to increase access to government data and information, and the potential limitations. More information, including the list of speakers, is here.

Please join us next Friday on the UW campus to watch the webcast. A short discussion, moderated by Mary Whisner, will follow.
