Resources to build digital communities
The Institute of Museum and Library Services has released two new publications to help communities bridge the digital divide.
Building Digital Communities: A Framework for Action identifies three categories of principles that define digital inclusion (access, adoption, and application) and outlines strategies that individuals, organizations, businesses, and policy makers can implement to achieve the goals of each principle.
Building Digital Communities: Getting Started is a companion primer that describes common steps that communities take to develop an understanding, assess needs and develop strategies.
Both publications emphasize the importance of working across sectors to increase opportunity to connect with citizens and sustainability for digitally inclusive communities. If you play a role in government, community organizations, business, or are interested in being involved in the discussion about what this Framework means for Minnesota communities, please consider getting involved with the Technology Literacy Collaborative.
