Endangered Accountability: A Webinar on FOIA, Government Data, and Transparency

Join members of Fondren Library and the Digital Library Federation’s new working group on Government Records Transparency and Accountability for a live conversation about government data and records transparency. In this webinar, we’ll dig below the headlines to talk about the current state of FOIA, the difference between “records” and “data,” and what, actually, is at risk in this current moment.

Fondren Fellows Showcase

Should Fondren Library offer treadmill desks, standing desks, bike desks or some other form of furniture that offers an alternative to just sitting? How might we map the exchanges among correspondents in a collection of over 300 Civil War letters? How do Rice scholars approach copyright agreements that they typically sign before publishing a book or article? Come hear how the 2016 cohort of Fondren Fellows approached these research questions--and learn more about the Fondren Fellows program itself.
