A Quick Update!

Last week Matt Timberlake, a member of our team from the Multnomah County Library, was at the Net Inclusion 2017 conference in Saint Paul, MN.  We’ll be sharing some insights from that experience in an upcoming post.

This week, team members Cindy Gibbon of the Multnomah County Library and Jill Castek of the University of Arizona are presenting at the Partnership for Progress on the Digital Divide 2017 Conference.  We’ll also be sharing that presentation on this blog.

We are also deep into our analysis and are turning our attention to creating materials for dissemination. We’re looking forward to sharing those with you this summer and fall.

And don’t forget, we would love to feature guest bloggers!  If you have research in  the area of digital literacy acquisition, digital equity and inclusion, or experiences in working with adult learners in digital literacy that you’d like to share, please let us know! Email for more information.

Understanding Our Patrons’ Needs In Order to Thrive Together in a Digital Environment

We had the honor of once again presenting at the Oregon Library Association conference held April 19-22.  Our team members, Amy Honisett and Cindy Gibbon from the Multnomah County Library, presented on how our work is helping us to understand patrons’ needs in order to thrive in a digital environment.  We are happy to provide a pdf of our slides. If you have any questions or comments, we would love to hear from you!
