3.2  |  The library selects and organizes online guides and instructions for identifying, finding, and using online eGovernment resources


Oftentimes eGovernment resources are confusing and hard to find and commercial websites that appear in search engines sometimes mislead people into thinking they are providing government information or services. Beyond providing useful links to eGovernment guides and instructions libraries can help people better use eGovernment resources and avoid poor or misleading information. Such guides might include information about applying for government benefits; citizenship and immigration information; tax instructions; official voting guides; consumer protection guides. Links to 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.
