Digital Divide, Digital Literacy, Library Value

Today the Minnesota Library Association (MLA) is in sync with the federal universe. The Federal Communications Commission Chair held a live meeting today to promote a new initative on digital literacy, broadband and workforce support. To see the library-related quotes, see today’s Librarian by Day blog entry.

Today there is an MLA Program on digital literacy and efforts to bridge the digital divide in MInnesota. We are in sync with the universe!
