Abstract

The early days of the Internet saw great optimism as to the potential for the freeing up of information and consequent greater accountability of governments. The Internet's very existence, as well as legislation like the UK's Freedom of Information Act (2000), has indeed improved the availability of information in some respects.

The early days of the Internet saw great optimism as to the potential for the freeing up of information and consequent greater accountability of governments. The Internet's very existence, as well as legislation like the UK's Freedom of Information Act (2000), has indeed improved the availability of information in some respects.

What's Inside:

"One drawback with online Government information has been the lack of attention to the issue of digital preservation. This has been improving, but it means that it is largely impossible to find free online documents from before the mid-1990s. The main exceptions are Parliamentary Acts and Statutory Instruments (the form in which regulations are usually presented); these are online from the late 1980s, with plans to go further back."
