Title: Freedom of Information Act
Url: https://www.archives.gov/foia
Publisher: United States. National Archives and Records Administration
Description: The Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) website, part of the National Archives and Record Administration (NARA) has been making it easy for journalists, scholars, activists, or any interested party with the statutory right, to get U.S. government information in executive branch agency records. Visitors interested in getting some information, should first read the "FOIA Reference Guide", which can be accessed via the link in the menu on the top left side of any page. The "FOIA Reference Guide" provides the proper way to make a FOIA request. Users can learn more about "Other FOIA Resources" via the link in the menu on the left side, in the bottom corner. There are a couple of links to other government agencies' information on FOIA, as well as a link to a pamphlet called "Your Right To Federal Records" and a link to "A Citizen's Guide to Using the Freedom of Information Act and Privacy Act of 1974 to Request Government Records".
