Originally presented Wednesday, October 30, 2013 with Bobbi Newman, Librarian by Day presenting.
The digital divide is more than lacking access to technology, it is knowing how to use technology well. An estimate 66 million Americans are not digitally literate. Libraries provide a bridge across the digital skills gap, by offering access to technology, instructions on the use of technology, and training in essential 21st century skills. This session will look at how libraries are uniquely positioned to help patrons close the gap.
