ALA Digital Literacy Series

News from the ALA Office for Information Technology Policy (OITP)….

“Our digital literacy task force is planning two virtual conversations around libraries and digital literacy.  Because we’re hoping to reach a wide audience, I wanted to share the blog post which describes the programs and a save the date email that we are sending out.  If you have colleagues in your networks that might be interested we would very much appreciate your help in getting the word out”

The series will explore the role of libraries in supporting and deepening digital literacy skills development for students, the general public and colleagues in other professions.
