Below are a few presentations on data and public records requests that I've given at conferences, classrooms, and other forums. I'm super passionate about FOIA laws and always happy to give advice, so please feel free to email me if you're running into resistance. For data questions, I always recommend spending some time Googling around for the answer. Figuring it out on your own, or at least attempting to, is simply the best way to learn.
