Free Webinar:Tools for Building Digital Skills with Your Patrons and Staff
Thursday, September 26, 2019 | 1-2 p.m. Central
Public libraries have long been leaders in bringing people into the digital world, providing programs and services that help patrons get jobs, gain knowledge, increase productivity, and engage with others online. Leveraging and strengthening existing library and community resources can help reduce staff burden and increase the library’s impact on digital literacy. In this free webinar, a panel of digital literacy experts will share tools, resources, and partnership strategies to help you enhance digital skill development among patrons and library staff.
This webinar is presented as part of the Public Library Association's (PLA) DigitalLead: Rural Libraries Creating New Possibilities project. PLA and Microsoft Corp. are helping rural populations reap the benefits of broadband internet connectivity.
Webinar content will help prepare participants for conversations with their organizations’ key stakeholders such as administrators, IT personnel, and content creators. Participants will gain knowledge and confidence to navigate digital preservation discussions and advocate for their organization’s long-term digital asset management and preservation work. Join us for this free learning opportunity!
