Your Feedback Needed on New Datasets Added to Data.gov

Last month, agencies were required by the Office of Management and Budget’s (OMB) Open Government Directive to post at least three “high value” datasets on Data.gov.

The Government Relations Office has developed a short survey on the usefulness of these new datasets to your work.

We need your feedback so that we can inform the White House and OMB on which datasets are the most valuable to legal researchers. This is a special opportunity to share your views with a receptive White House that is eager to hear your opinions.

We’d like to know which datasets are most useful to you, which datasets are not currently in Data.gov that you would like to see added, and how you or your library is using content from any of the datasets. For example, we want to know if your library has used the XML versions of the Code of Federal Regulations or the Federal Register to develop new tools.

We encourage you to take advantage of this unique opportunity to share your thoughts with the White House on this new transparency initiative. Please take a few minutes to fill out our survey by February 12.
