3.2  |  The library selects and organizes online links to local, state, and federal eGovernment resources


Libraries that meet this criteria provide a collection of web resources specific to eGovernment, such as links to local, state, and federal government forms or directories. Other resources may include tax preparation help, resource for local government services such as pothole repair, information about state or federal social services programs, or content created by a library in response to a specific and/or frequent eGovernment community need. These resources have been evaluated and kept current by librarians based on the needs and interests of community members. Resources should be thoughtfully curated and webpages offering these links should offer descriptive text to help patrons choose resources appropriate for their needs. Links to eGovernment resources that are spread out throughout the site, are not maintained or described, or are simply links to other websites that have collected links do not demostrate sufficient collection development practice to meet this criteria.


FOR THE ASSESSMENT
Answer Yes if you provide a webpage that contains an organized collection of eGovernment resources that are current and relevant to the community.
Answer No, but plan to in the next year if you do not have a webpage with eGovernment resources, if your links to eGovernment resources are not carefully selected to meet the needs of your community, or your eGovernment resources are not intentionally organized, but you plan to improve these resources to meet the indicator criteria in the next year.
Answer No, would like to but cannot at this time if you would like to offer carefully selected and organized eGovernment resources through your website but cannot at this time.
Answer No, we have no plans to do so at this time if you have decided not to assemble a collection of eGovernment resources, have found webpage collections on these topics assembled by other organizations to be sufficient for your community, or have decided not to organize and maintain current links to sufficiently enough to meet the indicator criteria.
