We brought this workshop back so we could host it at WNYLRC!
Michael Kuzma and Leslie James Pickering will lead a workshop on how attorneys, journalists, historians, or any person can file successful Freedom of Information (FOI) requests. This workshop will share tactics they have learned from the various FOI requests and appeals that they have submitted. Real examples of FOI requests, appeals, and releases will be used to demonstrate how to pry loose records from oft-times recalcitrant federal, state and local agencies. Anyone interested in open government issues won’t want to miss this one-of-a-kind presentation.
Great for librarians who are interested in learning more about obtaining available documents from the government and how this procedure works.
Please bring a laptop with you. The room will have WiFi.
