Social Service Referral
Libraries have become technological gateways for the public.
As government information and services move online and the job-market becomes an increasingly digital space, the importance of public Internet access points has grown exponentially.
Libraries offer communities important access to employment and electronic government (E-Government) resources by providing free access to:
- High-speed Internet.
- Technical assistance.
Job-seekers can use these resources to:
- Find job openings.
- Work on resumes.
- Apply for jobs online.
The E-Government roles public libraries play are particularly important for users who:
- Do not have high-speed Internet or computer access in the home.
- Lack the technology skills that E-Government websites require.
- Have difficulty understanding and using E-Government services.
