Event Files

Libraries have always focused on traditional literacy: the ability to read, write and interact through the printed word. Traditional literacy remains an important service to our patrons and our communities, because of the continued need for a literate citizenry. Due to rapidly evolving technology, however, it is no longer enough to focus on the ability to read and write alone. Libraries need to shift our focus to transliteracy: the ability to read, write and interact across a range of platforms, tools and media. Come learn how transliteracy is tied to literacy and why it is important to the future of libraries.

Learning Objectives:

After participating in this webinar, attendees will be able to:

  • Define and explain the value of transliteracy in a library services context;
  • Incorporate transliteracy concepts in library programs and services.
