Access for All: Libraries, Digital Inclusion and Community Empowerment Webinar

Aug 23, 2017, 10:00 am - 11:00 am

 

Location: Online via Zoom.

 

Description: Libraries are investing more and more in digital resources, but how do we ensure access for patrons and communities beyond our walls? Join us for a conversation to learn more about digital inclusion, including digital equity, literacy and net neutrality. We'll review new and upcoming resources to help your library become digital inclusion champions, and discuss strategies for working with your community to give everyone the opportunity to get online.

 

Learning Objectives:
  1. Gain a better understanding of what digital inclusion is and how the library plays a role
  2. Learn how your library can help qualifying patrons get low-cost internet in their homes
  3. Gain a better understanding of why national issues like Lifeline, eRate and Net Neutrality are important locally
  4. Discover resources and groups that can help you keep up with the changing access landscape
