dc.description.abstractLibraries are leading promoters and providers of free and equitable access to all types of information, to support education, learning, research, wellbeing and sustainable development. As part of this professional commitment, libraries and skilled librarians can and do bring more people online, and support digital literacy skills learning to enable them to make full use of (and benefit from) access to the internet and ICTs.
