The internet and digital technologies can be both forces for division and forces for inclusion, in all of economic, social, cultural and civic life. Public libraries can have a key influence for the good, through providing a multi-faceted and multi-layered approach to digital inclusion. This talk will explore the nature of public libraries‘ diverse contribution, and why they should be at the heart of any strategies for digital inclusion.

The talk is organised by the National Network of Public Libraries of Portugal.
