SLIS Alumna Among Speakers at the Upcoming E-Government Seminar

Join your Florida library staff colleagues to learn more about the resources for locating legal information to assist library patrons with their search for justice in Florida Courts. The E-Government in Public Libraries: Legal Information and Resources for Librarians will include an introduction to a variety of websites as well as other sources of information. Find out more about legal aid resources in various regions of the state and how to find local resources for your patrons. These seminars will help build relationships that will improve communication between Florida public libraries and the Florida self-help legal aid community.

Speakers:

Whitney Curtis, Reference/Instructional Services Librarian at Stetson University College of Law

Dani Lichtenberg, Research and Information Services Manager at Palm Beach County Library System

*Nancy Fredericks, E-Government Services Manager for Pasco County Public Library Cooperative and USF SLIS Alunna

Jimmy Midyette, Director of Statewide Technology for Florida Legal Services, Inc.

About the speakers:

Curtis, Lichtenberg and Fredericks represented Florida libraries at the January 2010 Conference on Public Libraries and Access to Justice held in Austin, Texas. Together with Midyette and Brown, they applied for a grant from the National Center for State Courts to tailor the information from the national conference to the needs of public librarians in Florida. Each seminar location will have additional guest speakers from the surrounding region.
