Question regarding negotiation tactics...

a. How might you try to show that local city government is attempting
   to deflect people, deny access or delay access to legitimately
   public documents by a tactic of attempting to extort additional
   punishing fees supposedly for segregating and copying?...

b. How might you try to show that inefficient records management
   practices are costing the local agency and delaying their own
   timely access to their own records for purposes of running the
   agency well and for the agency's own long range planning.

c. What are some persuasive words or ways to try to show that it's in
   the public interest for the agency to disclose its public
   information more willingly, more openly?...

d. How might you negotiate through a local agency's resistance in a
   manner that gives you even a little bit more of a relatively
   greater enfranchisement and is a relatively more amicable

A few ideas that have been developed a little focus on historic
preservation and effective archival records management issues.
For example, our Boston Public Library Departments and other city
departments use tactics of charging the maximum allowable fees for
access effectively diverting people, denying access or delaying access
for city public library collections with the claim the collections of
legitimately public BPL studies and consultants reports are
operational collections of documents not subject to the usual
practices of access for library collections. It raises questions of
whether because inefficient archival records management practices
we're losing historic documentation of our institution that BPLusers,
library personnel of all institutional levels and library unions labor
relations collective bargaining advocates would find of interest, of
concern or that affects our communities constituencies.
That's ironical for a city public library not to preserve its very own
historical documentation more effectively.

e. What web links are there around the web that examine concepts
   regarding negotiation techniques?... in addition to
   the Harvard Program on Negotiation

Cheer and season's greetings!
