Collection of sites that deal with Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests and documents. This includes government sites that receive and distribute FOIA documents as well as non-profit organizations and government watchdogs that request large numbers of FOIA documents on specific topics like national security and civil rights. We're extremely interested -- for purely academic reasons -- in how this collection is being used and would be grateful if users would share that information with us. Please email James Jacobs, Government Information Librarian, at jrjacobs AT stanford DOT edu. User privacy is extremely important so of course any stories and personal information will be kept strictly confidential.
