The Government Sources Pathfinder was created with the patrons of the Columbus-Lowndes Public Library in mind. Patrons very frequently are affected by the Digital Divide, and therefore, frequently do not have the computer skills necessary to apply for employment online. The pathfinder was created in order to provide patrons with basic computer information, as well as a list of local, state, and national jobs to which they can apply. The Government Sources Pathfinder is an attempt to bridge the gap created by the Digital Divide.
