New Tool to Disseminate Digital Literacy Resources Info

In partnership with the Ad Council, Connect2Compete (C2C) will be launching a national campaign in 2013 to promote the importance of digital literacy and encourage individuals and families to access free community resources and training. The campaign will direct visitors to an innovative zip-code locator tool that identifies free computer access and digital literacy training course sites in their area. In collaboration with the American Library Association and the Institute of Museum and Library Services, C2C is asking libraries nationwide to submit their information to help populate the database for this tool. If your library offers any facilitator or trainer-led digital literacy training courses (e.g. Computer and Internet basics, How to search and apply for jobs online, Internet safety tips, etc), or offers access to self-paced learning resources or one-one-one training, please go here to submit your library’s information.
