New iteration—Cutting the Red Tape: Finding and Using E-Government Tools and Resources eCourse

Chicago—ALA Publishing eLearning Solutions announces a new iteration of our popular eCourse, Cutting the Red Tape: Finding and Using E-Government Tools and Resources. Diane Kovacs will serve as the instructor for a 4-week facilitated eCourse starting on Monday, July 9, 2018.

E-government tools and resources bring many people to your library for such activities as filing and paying taxes online, locating Medicare/Medicaid providers and reviews, checking student loan status, tracking regulatory changes for industries, monitoring ongoing legislation as well as codified law and court rulings, and much more. This hands-on eCourse also explores the information published online by the U. S. federal government through the Government Printing Office and specific agencies and government branches.

Experienced online instructor and consultant Diane Kovacs covers the best sites to begin researching for government information in general and specifically for business, healthcare, genealogy, history, current government, legal, regulatory, taxes, retirement, insurance, and state and local government information.
