January Issue of the Washington E-Bulletin

The January issue of the Washington E-Bulletin highlights agencies’ progress on meeting the deadlines of the Obama Administration’s Open Government Directive. The first deadline required agencies to publish online in an open format at least three “high-value” datasets on Data.gov, the Federal government’s new raw-data portal.

The Government Relations Office is asking you to fill out our short survey on the usefulness of these new datasets to your work. We will share the results of the survey with the White House and Office of Management and Budget to inform them about which datasets are most valuable to legal researchers.

Here is the Table of Contents from the January issue:
