This is a mini conference designed to share ideas and initiatives for bridging the digital divide across library types and communities in response to the increased need for access to the internet and usable electronic devices during COVID-19. Presentations will address such topics as digital equity, tips for partnering with non-profits, virtual programming strategies, shifting collection development and technology needs, and other issues related to ensuring that library users in academic, public, and school libraries are able to effectively access online resources and services. The keynote speech will be provided by Rob Ross, Executive Director of NC LIVE.
I will be facilitating a round table discussion regarding school and public library partnerships and the digital divide.
