A vast majority of adults who visit with America's librarians about what they want or need in the way of services bring up techological or digital literacy as a priority.
A survey by OCLC Research taken in June of U.S. librarians turned up that not very surprising trend. The survey results were just published by OCLC WebJunction.
One of those polled told OCLC Research that, "Patrons are realizing that digital literacy is a speeding train that they need to catch."
Wish I'd said that. It's certainly true of people I talk to here at the library.
We are continuing to take our own survey to see what people would like us to offer in the way of educational programs this fall. So far, thre seemsx to be a big demand for training on anything Microsoft. But, lots of folks also want to learn about Adobe Photoshop.
If you have an interest in such classes, please take a minute to complete the survey on our home page. Or come by the library and fill out a paper form, if that's your preference.
If you've already taken the survey, thanks!
