The Role of Libraries in Advancing Digital Problem Solving

On March 9th Gloria Jacobs, a member of the Digital Equity in Library research team, and her colleague, Tyler Frank, presented roundtables based on their work with the Digital Equity in Libraries (DEL) project at Dr. Patty Anders’ retirement conference, “Adolescent, Family and Community Literacy: Mobilizing Strength-based Pedagogies” at the University of Arizona. Gloria is a research associate at Portland State University and a research specialist at the University of Arizona. Gloria’s presentation was an overview of the project with a focus on libraries as important community anchor institutions that are uniquely positioned for promoting and supporting the development of digital problem solving practices among vulnerable adults.  Download the handout from her presentation.
