Environmental Information: A Workshop for Researchers


October 26, 2017


Washington, DC (and webinar)

An ELI Public Seminar

In an ideal world, environmental information would be easy to find and use. But the current state of environmental information access requires additional knowledge and expertise—the kind provided by Sarah Lamdan’s recent book, “Environmental Information: Research, Access, and Environmental Decisionmaking” (ELI Press, 2017).

Designed for legal practitioners, librarians, journalists, advocates, students, and researchers, the book helps environmental information seekers locate, obtain, and make sense of environmental records, documents, and data. The book discusses environmental research tactics and resources and it also covers methods for obtaining information from nontraditional sources, like government offices and open meetings.

Sarah Lamdan led a workshop on the various tools and strategies discussed in the book. The workshop included the opportunity to have questions answered by the author, provided deeper insight into environmental research and information access laws, and discussed how to apply various concepts from the book.
