This is part three of a three part series on the upcoming Open Government Portal.

Inside the New Portal

The portal will work just like a library catalogue—users can search and see results and can filter their searches to one ministry or subject or simply use keywords to find what they need. When users find what they’re looking for, they will be able to download the publication and view it on a computer, save it or even send it to someone else. It will also be possible to subscribe to an RSS feed that will update subscribers on new publications matching their search.

Open Information: The Library in Your Lap

Submitted by Louisa Robison Open Information Team Lead for Open Government, 2014-12-05

This is the first part of a three-part series where we describe our vision for the new Open Government portal.

Imagine a library. Imagine shelves that go on forever, every book ever published on them. Imagine never having to wait for a book because it’s out to someone else, never having to get them back on time, and always having access without a card. Now imagine that library is in your living room, on demand.
