As more and more citizens decide to use both new and traditional media to engage in investigative reporting, they may wonder how they can find out more about governmental activities. The Citizen Journalist's Guide to Open Government, provided by the Knight Citizen News Network, is an excellent place to start. The guide is divided into ten "doors", covering everything from "Access to Courts" to "Following Up on Records Requests". Behind each "door" visitors can take part in interactive learning activities, watch video clips featuring interviews with experts, and just generally learn about how to secure access to crucial documents, meetings, and court reports. Finally, visitors won't want to miss their weblog, which provides users with a place to ask questions about government records, meetings, or courts.
