E-Government services in FDLP libraries

E-Government services in FDLP libraries

Even though I'm in a state library it seems to me that public libraries that are FDLP members will increasingly specialize in offering E-government services to the public. I don't expect this from academic libraries for the simple reason that the public is more used to using their local public libraries than their local academic libraries (this may not be the case in every location, but it is so in Oklahoma). The public heads to their public libraries for E-government help. Any public library that can call upon a depository collection and experienced staff in working with federal government information can offer enhanced E-government services to the public. This can be a niche that public library FDLP members excel in. It can also be a reason for public libraries to stay in the FDLP, and since many/most public libraries are already providing E-government services, they can become leaders in providing E-government services.
