Promoting Digital Literacy through Public Libraries

Digital literacy is being able to use digital information and technology effectively, efficiently, and ethically. This skill set is important when it comes to staying connected to family and friends who live far away, staying safe on the internet, gaining access to information, and participating in the workforce.

Drs. Brian Detlor and Tara LaRose from McMaster, along with Hamilton Public Library, are exploring how public libraries can best deliver and evaluate programs and initiatives that help improve digital literacy skills among community members.
