IMLS Works Toward Universal Digital Inclusion
The Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) partnered with the PAST Foundation’s National Digital Inclusion Alliance (NDIA) on a pilot project for improving access to online information in the U.S. via the Digital Inclusion Corps (i.e., local digital literacy trainers). Three state library agencies and two museum organizations have joined the pilot to provide corps members to five tribal and rural communities. These members will create digital equity plans for the communities that will address issues such as affordable home and public internet access, low-cost devices, and digital literacy training and technology support.
