CURRENT CITES


Current Cites: February 2015 

Thompson, Kim M., et. al.Digital Literacy and Digital Inclusion   Lanham, MD: Rowman & Littlefield, 2014. (https://rowman.com/ISBN/9780810892712). - Australia, the Netherlands and South Korea, among others, are all outpacing the United States in bringing their citizenry onto the Internet. The first four chapters make a compelling case for why digital literacy is beneficial for commerce, specifically, and societies in general. For users to be both included in the digital world and also operate as literate there, they must have physical access, intellectual access, and social access to information and computer technologies. Intellectual access means being able to understand and use the technology once you have physical access. Social access is how information is used (or not used) within a social context: "... the idea that simply because one can physically and intellectually access needed information, it does not necessarily follow that one does access that information or that all readers, listeners, or touchers interpret the information in the same way." (p. 6) The authors then make a compelling case for the critical role of public libraries in advancing digital literacy. Finally, they make public policy recommendations, tying in existing research and the experience of libraries globally. The only drawback here is that the $75 price will make it prohibitive for advocates to purchase a copy for every federal, state and county library funder in the country. - NN
