The theme of this year’s conference is: Digital Divide 3.0: Bridging Gaps in Information Literacy. The digital divide encompasses inequalities in access to and the use of the internet and other technology. This conference will consider how library workers can develop policies, programs, and instructional practices that address the three levels of the digital divide:

  • The first level of the digital divide is disparities in internet access. 
  • The second level is disparities in internet skills and use. This includes both digital literacy and information literacy.
  • The third level is disparities in the outcomes of internet use, because having access and digital skills does not mean that everyone benefits from internet use in the same way.

The pandemic has exacerbated the digital divide, especially for college students and K-12 students and their families. Additionally, the Black Lives Matter movement has resulted in a growing national awareness of and critical conversations around persistent racial inequalities.

This year’s conference is free, however, you have the option to include a donation to support the work of the Connecticut Information Conference.
