The University of Maryland at College Park and its partner, the American Library Association Office of Government Relations, will use this grant to fund fifteen scholarships for MLS students with a concentration in e-government. The rapid growth of e-government services continues to raise many fundamental questions about the nature of government information and its management, dissemination, access, and preservation. Digital technologies offer new and innovative approaches for governments at the same time as they challenge libraries to serve the changing needs of the public.
