This webinar will explain digital citizenship and the need for librarians to help people become good digital citizens. It offers a structure for instruction that can be used in formal and informal educational settings, including libraries. It also provides strategies and resources that facilitate digital citizenship, and suggests ways that librarians in different kinds of settings can collaborate.
Strategies and resources for library involvement and leadership in digital citizenship will also be shared.
