E-Government Webinar Video Now Available

Webinar video from the ALA webinar “Libraries & E-government” is now available. The online seminar focuses on helping public libraries provide their patrons with government services.

As part of the webinar, participants will learn:

  • How to use www.libegov.org, an easy-to-use web tool that helps libraries serve the e-government needs of their communities.
  • How to use the virtual Ask A Librarian feature through Government Information Online service.
  • More about online resources available from government agencies and non-governmental organizations that deal with issues, such as immigration and taxation.

For the next few weeks, the American Library Association will provide online e-government and immigrant services seminars to library staff at no charge. The next webinar, titled “Taking Action: Legal Barriers to Library Services to Immigrants & Access to Information,” will take place May 1, 2013 (register now). Additionally, REFORMA, the ALA Washington Office and the ALA Office for Library Advocacy will host a free webinar on May 14, 2013 (more details to come later).

Jessica McGilvary is the Assistant Director of ALA Washington Office's Office of Government Relations (OGR).

    Why does the screen image remain static, stuck on the “Intro” slide? Is there any way to get any other slides the presenters used?

  2. Hi, E-

    After testing the video, I have found no problems with it. Maybe try watching it on YouTube instead of on the blog?

  3. Michael says:

    If there’s a video embedded on the page, I can’t see it at work. Nor can we use YouTube at work — PCs are blocked from YouTube. Can you post a URL instead of embedding video, to view it somewhere other than YouTube? Thanks,

  4. There is a video embedded, which definitely explains why you can’t see it. Alternately, you can find the video at this url: https://ala.adobeconnect.com/_a1087453682/p4x9wq2rmik/ – but this is a raw archive with no edits, so the actual webinar doesn’t start until about a minute into that video (as of now).

  5. Michael says:

    Thanks Jacob.. I am able to view that video now from my PC. From Adobeconnect site.. many thanks!

  6. Glad it worked, Michael.
