Digital Skills Checklist

Digital skills, and helping our patrons develop those skills, has become a critical service for many of us in libraries today. As the technology and its adoption evolves, the skills we need to learn and coach move from the very basic to more mature skill sets. Identifying some of these critical skills for successful netizens has been an ongoing project and TBLC has recently posted a checklist of targeted skills.

Obviously no library would be able to provide training in all these skills, but most already are meeting some of these training needs, and they probably aren't getting credit for their efforts.

If you have stories to share or suggestions for implementation, May I suggest joining and continuing the discussion in the Learning Support Member Group listserv
