On the Prowl for Government Information?
Some of the first changes made by the Obama administration seem to be aimed at granting more access to government and presidential documents. In addition to the weekly release of presidential documents started by President Johnson in 1965, the Government Printing Office will now offer a daily compilation. He has also increased access to presidential papers held by the national archive. As the Law Librarian Blog points out this is a real policy change from the policy that former President Bush implemented with Executive Order 13233.
