Digital Literacy, Libraries, and Public Policy: Report of the American Library Association Digital Literacy Task Force

  • The OITP Digital Literacy Task Force is pleased to share this preliminary report and is seeking feedback from across the profession on this draft.  The report provides a broad overview of libraries and digital literacy. It discusses the current policy context, including digital inclusion, education, life-long learning, and workforce development. The report outlines library-specific issues and opportunities.  It reaffirms the need for traditional, text-based literacy in reading and writing as a foundation for other literacies.  Finally, the report serves as a launching point for the development of a set of recommendations to the Association and the broader library community to continue and expand libraries’ engagement and leadership to effect meaningful and sustainable change in our communities. The Task Force will develop these recommendations as a companion piece to this report.
