Jaeger, Paul T.; Bertot, John Carlo; Shuler, John A.; McGilvray, Jessica
Education for Information, v29 n1 p39-52 2012
This paper examines the implications of the continued growth of e-government information, communication, and services for Library and Information Science programs in the United States in light of the development of e-government educational programs and library/government partnerships. The implementation of e-government raises several important challenges and opportunities for information organizations, and the programs and partnerships explored in this paper detail innovative approaches and pressing challenges in pedagogy and practice. Following an overview of e-government and the roles of government information in numerous information organizations, this paper discusses the programs, partnerships, and key lessons they raise for information educators and information professionals.
