Australian Library and Information Association
The Australian Library and Information Association (ALIA) welcomes the opportunity to provide a submission to the Government 2.0 Taskforce. ALIA believes that:
- it is very timely for a review of the potential to provide better access to government information and interaction with government now that the 2.0 technologies have emerged;
- a strong democratic Australia can only be achieved by engaging with public and other libraries to deliver digital connectivity, content and capability; and
- a clear, targeted strategy is needed to deliver social inclusion in the digital environment. A digital economy can only be build by a community with digital access, digital content that supports their lives and digital skills.
