Digital literacy is the ability to use information and communication technologies to find, evaluate, create, and communicate information. Librarians serving diverse, underserved communities are regularly confronted with digital literacy dilemmas. In addition to providing access to technology and basic and increasingly creative instruction, they must address the boundaries of patron privacy, the increasing importance of adaptive technology, and the complex issues around digital citizenship. Panelists will address these issues and begin a national conversation. Sponsored by ALA's Committee on Literacy, OITP Digital Literacy Task Force, the OLOS Advisory Committee, and PLA.
