State librarian and board win FOI Award

"Librarian of Virginia Nolan T. Yelich and the state library board were honored Monday for their efforts to get former Gov. Jim Gilmore's records placed in the state achives for use by historians and researchers."

"Yelich and the board received the Freedom of Information Award given by the Virginia Coalition for Open Government, a group founded in 1996 to promote public access to government."

"Gilmore and the state library reached a mediated agreement last November to have 236 additional boxes of records sent to the library, ending a six-month impasse." (from The Daily Press)
