About the Government Information and Official Publications Section
Governments, intergovernmental organizations and public non-governmental organizations generate large quantities of documents and information which shape our lives and mould the societies in which we live. The Section promotes the discovery, collection, bibliographic control, preservation and dissemination of information from and about all these public bodies. Persons interested in the Section are drawn from the world community of specialists in access to public documents and public policy. They share the mission of promoting free and equitable access to quality information in order to assure accountability from governments and other public bodies to the people they serve.
