March 16 is Freedom of Information Day. This day celebrates your right to access whatever information you choose. The day is named in honor of James Madison, author of the US Constitution, 4th President of the United States and advocate of an open and transparent government. The day was founded as a way to commemorate the Freedom of Information Act of 1966 which grants the right to access federal government information and records that are not protected by exemption or special law enforcement records exclusions.
At Paul Smith Library, we affirm your right to access information. Here you are free to seek whatever information you choose. If you are unable to find the information you seek, please ask us. We will be happy to help you access information.
