Description

National Library and Information Technicians Symposium, 27-29 September 2017 North Sydney: bridge to knowledge
 
This conference paper discusses initiatives to break down barriers among different age-groups in the community through collaborative programs.
 
Libraries have a unique strength within their communities, catering specifically to their local population as well as being of vital national importance. Through access to certain technologies, resources, and services, libraries contain an array of learning potentials. Coupling this with the patronage of a wide spectrum of demographics, a library has the capacity to improve a community's social cohesion. Of concern here are ways to improve the local digital literacy through partnerships between adults and youth. By utilising knowledge of the more technological savvy to teach those lacking such an understanding, libraries can assist others in engaging in an advancing, technologically dependent era.
