Two new online modules for library staff launched

Libraries Connected is pleased to announce the launch of two brand new online modules, Key Digital Skills and Media and Information Literacy. 

These modules have been developed by the Information and Digital Universal Library Offer group as part of their work on media literacy and digital skills development. The online modules aim to give library staff and volunteers the skills and knowledge needed to provide effective media literacy support to communities and library users. The Key Digital Skills module is underpinned by the Essential Digital Skills Framework.  The Media and Information Literacy module has been funded by the Department for Culture Media and Sport and links to their Online Media Literacy Strategy. 

The modules are both available via the Libraries Connected Learning Pool website. It is suggested users complete the Key Digital Skills module first.
