Digital Inclusion: Lessons Learned and Best or Promising Practices
Comments:
Libraries, especially public libraries, in the U.S. are critical community partners in providing access to broadband and opportunity to develop comfort with and skills to use it through targeted and culturally relevant programming. While basic digital skills training and support remains critical, it would be interesting to look at social and economic trends that drive the next several levels of digital skills and dispositions and how community organizations (such as libraries) evolve their services to meet users where they are. The Institute for Museum and Library Services provides grants to libraries related to digital inclusion and the American Library Association also has long-term knowledge of ways libraries reach the public, especially those from underrepresented groups and low-income households.
