Hi Chris, I really enjoyed reading your post. I found it intersting that you had difficulties locating the information about these classes. I too have had difficulty navigating the ‘What’s on’ section of this website. I wonder, how do those who are not digitally literate, or are struggling with digital literacy, find out about these programs if a) they are difficult to find and b) they are accessed through a digital media (although I assume some adverting can be found in print and word of mouth at the library branch). Many of this week’s readings discuss the importance of reaching out to those who require help with digital literacy, and indeed these programs do that just that. However, how can they be promoted more proficiently in a way that doesn’t require a digital platform? It seems to be a catch 22 for libraries around the world.
