Description

Developing library programming that meets the needs of the organization and community but is also interesting and accessible to your audience often feels impossible. However, engaging with the community is not a sisyphean task. Spending time on social engagement and activism will allow you to understand what the community’s needs and interests are so that you can design digital literacy programming that has an audience. Learn how the Humboldt State Library has used the Salzburg Curriculum (http://salzburg.hyperlib.sjsu.edu/) to guide the role of the Digital Media Lab and how you can strategize to improve your programming.
