The General Service Administration (GSA) is calling for comments on how to improve the government’s official web portal, USA.gov, an interagency initiative to make it easy for the public to get U.S. government information and services on the web. The dialogue will be open until January 15, 2010, and USA.gov staff will regularly post new questions and respond to them.
Through their blog, USA.gov is currently seeking information in response to this question:
At present, the majority of the USA.gov website is comprised of links to other government resources, so visitors often have to leave the website to find the information and services they’re seeking. Should USA.gov provide more government content and fewer off-site links?
Law librarians bring a unique perspective to this question and others, and we encourage you to share your thoughts with GSA. You must register to post or to respond to ideas. Thank you!
