Draft - Digital Literacy, Libraries, and Public Policy
"This report of the Task Force provides a broad overview of libraries and digital literacy. It discusses the current policy context, including digital inclusion, education, life-long learning, and workforce development. The report outlines library-specific issues and opportunities. It reaffirms the need for traditional, text-based literacy in reading and writing as a foundation for other literacies. Finally, the report serves as a launching point for the development of a set of recommendations to the Association and the broader library community to continue and expand librariesí engagement and leadership to effect meaningful and sustainable change in our communities. The Task Force will develop these recommendations as a companion report."
