"What Does E-Government Mean to U.S. Citizens and Librarians?" The University of Illinois at Chicago Library will host the 19th annual Yuri Nakata Lecture. The lecture will focus on information resources management for effective and efficient government services delivery.

"During her 13-year affiliation with UIC's library, Professor Nakata built a collection of over 500,000 government publications and developed a model for the public use of government documents that has been widely studied and implemented," said Linda Naru, director of advancement for the library. "The library presents the lectures in honor of Yuri Nakata's distinguished career as documents librarian at UIC."
