Dear Members - 

We are sharing information about research that the association is supporting.  At this time, all documentation is in English only.  We will work towards providing French language translation as the work progresses.  Thank you for your understanding.


CFLA and CULC are partner organizations on my SSHRC PDG funded project entitled “Promoting Digital Literacy in the Community through Public Library Initiatives.” The first phase of the project is now complete and I am happy to let you both know that a working paper is now freely available that reports the findings from the first phase of our study. We plan to use these results as input into the design of one or more surveys to public libraries across Canada. We hope that you and your leadership teams can help provide feedback on early drafts of such surveys and then, once finalized, help recruit people from your memberships to complete the surveys. All this survey work will occur in 2021.


Here is the link to the working paper: https://macsphere.mcmaster.ca/handle/11375/25935


Please feel free to disseminate this working paper to your Association’s leadership team and/or membership. Feedback on the working paper is welcomed.


Best regards,
