presents findings from the Digital Inclusion Survey and explores the
intersections of public access technologies and education, employment,
health & wellness, digital literacy, e-government and inclusion. It will
share new tools and demonstrate how to locate and interpret national
<http://digitalinclusion.umd.edu/content/reports> and state
<http://digitalinclusion.umd.edu/state-details>-level results from the
survey for planning and advocacy purposes, as well as present cases for the
interactive mapping tool
<http://digitalinclusion.umd.edu/content/interactive-map>, with suggestions
for creating a digital inclusion snapshot of your public library.
- Participants will become more aware of the status of digital inclusion
services in public libraries.
- Participants will be able to locate and use survey results at the
national and state level.
- Participants will be able to use the interactive mapping tool that
combines community level data with 2013 Digital Inclusion Survey data.
- Participants will become more familiar with how library data can be
used and “mashed up” with other public community data to identify service
gaps and make the case for added library capacity to meet local needs.
Who Should Attend?
All public librarians who have an interest in digital inclusion; library
directors who must make decisions about what types of resources and
services to fund; CIOs; library board members; and youth services
librarians who often lead to way to new technologies in the library.
