Digital Literacy Skills
Digital literacy is no longer optional.
There are some fundamental digital literacy skills that I believe ALL library staff regardless of their position should know:
- how search engines work
- privacy and protection tips
- social bookmarking
- communicating online
- content curation
- digital rights and responsibilities and
- Creative Commons licences
These are learn-able skills. These are extremely valuable skills for our work in the library profession. These are also very valuable skills to share with our community members.
There is no need to take staff out of the library and as an added bonus library staff come away with a one-page blueprint to enable them to easily apply their learning to their job.
