This document provides instructions for the completion of an E-Government Activity Log and the log itself. This log will assist the Indiana State Library and the Information Institute (at the Florida State University) to estimate the costs that Indiana public libraries incur in their provision of e-government services.
Upon completion of the survey, please send the completed activity logs via INfoExpress to Wendy Knapp's attention at the Indiana State Library.
The Public Library eGovernment Costs and Broadband Survey is purposed to better describe and understand the costs, services, and benefits related to public library provision of e-government services in Indiana. Access to and use and delivery of government materials and services through the public library continues to expand at a rapid rate and public libraries are developing a range of service roles related to e-government. Ultimately the project will result in outcomes that assist the Indiana State Library and public libraries to develop and implement strategies for improved e-government services and to leverage and better manage associated costs of public library e-government service provision.
The study is lead by renowned broadband expert Dr. Charles McClure of the Florida State University Information Institute. McClure noted that this study will build on previous e-government research that the Information Institute has completed which are available at the Information Institute website at http://www.ii.fsu.edu/. This project is made possible by an LSTA grant from the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services, administered by the Indiana State Library.
