    摘要:

    《2019年发展与获取信息报告》(Development and Access to Information,简称DA2I)是一系列报告的第二期,由国际图联(International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions,简称IFLA)牵头,与华盛顿大学技术和社会变革小组(the Technology and Social Change Group, University of Washington)合作,关注各国在履行承诺,促进信息获取方面取得的进展。

    针对各国政府承诺促进信息获取作为联合国可持续发展目标的一部分,报告提供了一系列国家表现好坏的指标。从四个不同的信息获取层面(连接性、社会与文化规范、技能和法律)来看,它可以洞察信息获取的不同维度。借鉴IFLA的丰富经验,它还特别关注图书馆如何促进更具社会和经济包容性的评估案例研究。

    摘要:

    Key findings of the 2019 Oxford Internet Survey include:

    • After many years of rapid change, parts of the Internet are stabilising

    • Internet users have rapidly increased banking, commercial and entertainment activity

    • Generally, there are small or no increases in content-production activities like posting

    pictures, commenting, reviewing, maintaining a personal website, or blogging

    • Access to the Internet has increased but only incrementally

    • Almost everyone under the age of 50 uses the Internet

    • There remain higher proportions of non-users below the median income (£28,400/year

    in 2018)

    • There are also disproportionate percentages of non-users among less-educated groups

    Key findings on harmful experiences include:

    • Harmful experiences on the Internet, like viruses or theft of credit card details, have

    been stable—they have not increased

    • Most users are not strongly concerned about the possibility of being a victim as a result

    of their Internet activity

    • The overwhelming majority of users do not like the corporate use of the Internet for

    targeted advertising

    • Most non-users are not interested in going online—they are non-users by choice

    • A small group of non-users (10%) say that the most important reason they are not online

    is because they are worried about their privacy

  • 摘要:

    A newly released American Library Association (ALA) report marks the 10th anniversary of the American Dream Literacy Initiative and celebrates the many ways that participating public libraries have transformed lives, strengthened their communities, and advocated tirelessly for adult literacy and lifelong learning.

    Funded by the Dollar General Literacy Foundation, the American Dream Literacy Initiative offers grants to U.S. public libraries to expand services for adult English language learners (ELL) or adults in need of basic education and workforce development. More than $1.5 million in funding has been distributed to 188 libraries since the program’s inception, reaching approximately 25,000 English language learners.

    With grants of $5,000 to $15,000, participating libraries have developed new courses, expanded their print and digital collections, increased access to technology, implemented new strategies for inclusion, and developed sustainable partnerships with organizations across their communities.

    View “American Dream Literacy Initiative: How 10 Years of Funding Has Helped Libraries Transform Thousands of Lives.”

    Findings shared in the report include:

    Employment is the No. 1 reason English language learners access their public library. Other reasons include supporting children in school, language acquisition, computer/internet use, education and citizenship.

    American Dream funding leads to deeper community connections. More than 65 percent of participating libraries reported that their American Dream grant funding improved networking with community partners and other libraries.

    Partnership is beneficial to program longevity. Grantees that developed partnerships were seven times more likely to have sustained their English language learner services.

    The report also highlights successes from American Dream libraries.

    Sterling Municipal Library (Baytown, Texas) saw library users increase 43 percent over the grant period; use of Rosetta Stone software increased from 252 to 426 hours.

    Guilderland (New York) Public Library trained 24 tutors who worked with 35 students both one-on-one and in small groups.

    Terrebonne Parish (Louisiana) Library System created Conectado, a campaign that included courses, story times and festivals to engage adult English language learners and celebrate Hispanic culture.

    Louisville (Kentucky) Free Public Library purchased iPads and software to help students study for citizenship and GED exams, improve their pronunciation, and learn English idioms and grammar.

    The American Dream Literacy Initiative is administered by ALA’s Office for Diversity, Literacy and Outreach Services (ODLOS) and Public Programs Office.

    摘要:

    The State of America’s Libraries report is a summary of library trends released during National Library Week, April 7 – 13, that outlines statistics and issues affecting all types of libraries. Never have our nation’s libraries played such a pivotal role in strengthening communities through education and lifelong learning. Libraries are a microcosm of the larger society. They play an important and unique role in the communities that they serve and provide an inclusive environment where all are treated with respect and dignity. No longer just places for books, our public libraries serve as a lifeline for some of our nation’s most vulnerable communities. From community-wide issues as illiteracy, homelessness and community silos, our nation’s public libraries are acting as catalysts in fostering community-wide solutions that strengthen communities.

    摘要:

    Libraries matter for Europe – they are key venues for learning and civic engagement, windows for all to culture and heritage, and drivers of research and innovation.

    And in turn, Europe matters for libraries.

    To be able to build stronger, smarter and fairer societies, our institutions depend on the decisions taken in Brussels, Strasbourg and Luxembourg. We are looking for a Europe that helps us achieve our mission.

    That is why we, organisations representing libraries across Europe, encourage you to read and support this manifesto.
