Action Alert! Contact your Representative Protect Access to Federally Funded Research

A new bill, The Frontiers in Innovation, Research, Science and Technology Act of 2013 (FIRST), has been introduced in Congress. The current language of Section 302 would restrict public access to articles reporting on federally-funded research for up to three years after the initial publication. The American Library Association (ALA) opposes this language because it limits public access.

To learn more about this bill and ALA’s opposition to it, please see the District Dispatch post.

To use Capwiz to contact your representative, go to the Capwiz Action Alert. A pre-written letter is provided, which can be personalized to make it more effective.

Thanks in advance for any advocacy efforts!
