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.”

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.

Join ELI and author Sarah Lamdan for a workshop on the various tools and strategies discussed in the book. The workshop will include the opportunity to have your questions answered by the author, glean deeper insight into environmental research and information access laws, and discuss how to apply various concepts from the book to your profession.
