What is Meebo and how do I get set up?

TOPIC: emerging issues in ADVOCACY for electronic government information

Accessing government information electronically is now common in both US and international contexts. How have communications with government providers, with users and communities changed?

This session is meant to be a brainstorm — to collect ideas and examples, rather than to follow each contribution to its conclusion. The room will be open after the session if you would like to add comments after the planned session. There is also a brief participant survey which includes a place for feedback.

Agenda for Today’s Forum:

*introductions
*logistics
*how have communications with government information providers changed? US/international, etc.
*what are the most important things users need to know now to gain access to electronic gov info — how should librarians be supporting these needs?
*How can GITCO help librarians with electronic gov info advocacy? What resources, or tools should we be producing?
*take the survey
