LibEGov Team to Present at ALA 2013!
The LibEGov team will be presenting the session "Public Libraries and eGovernment: Meeting the Needs of Your Community through Partnerships for Effective Services" at the American Library Association Conference June 29, 2013. Learn about:
- The role of public libraries in providing e-government services;
- The LibEGov site, specifically how information is organized and different ways to use the site;
- Resources available throughout the site that can help you develop e-government related programming and resources at your library; and
- The ways in which the site can help librarians to continually improve e-government services for their communities.
Developed by the Information Policy & Access Center at the University of Maryland, the American Library Association, and various public and state libraries, and funded by the Institute of Museum and Library Services through a National Leadership Grant, is designed with the goal of helping libraries to better meet the e-government needs of users. The site aims to foster collaboration among libraries and government agencies, and also to think more broadly about partnerships to meet community e-government needs. Its current focus is on selected federal information, with the goal of expanding to other topics and levels of government (state and local).
