Title: Masters of the GovDoc Universe: Public Libraries as Local E-government Service Providers?

Speaker: 

  • A.J. Million, Director, Media Center, Drury University

Description:

    In the United States, public libraries facilitate the use of eGovernment services by providing reference support and Internet access to patrons. Public libraries are also trusted, value-driven organizations committed to the dissemination of knowledge and the promotion of civic ideals. Although public libraries are suited to build and maintain online collections of local government records, the libraries’ role in local eGovernment often remains limited. This presentation summarizes library and eGovernment research and looks at the vital role that public libraries can play in building and maintaining digital collections of city and county records.
