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).
