Libraries Featured in EveryoneOn Media Campaign is a national three-year media campaign—currently underway—to raise awareness of the importance of digital literacy. The campaign’s mission is to promote the personal relevance of computer and high-speed Internet use among non-users, and to connect them with free digital literacy training. It is likely that, in many cases, this training will be provided through school and public libraries. In Year One, the National Ad Council campaign will focus on the call to action: “Find free training near you!” It will direct customers to call, text, or visit a Website with a directory of sites where they can receive one-on-one instruction and/or classes.

Many Nebraska libraries have been pre-filled into this directory. the Nebraska Library Commission recently hosted a Webinar broadcast to:

  • Explore the EveryoneOn campaign tools.
  • Demonstrate how to ensure that the directory entry for your library is correct.
  • Help identify resources so that Nebraska libraries can be the Go-to-Place for digital literacy training in their community.

The recording of the NCompass Live session “EveryoneOn @your library®”, originally broadcast on August 14, is now available via the NCompass Live website at: Click the “Archived NCompass Live Sessions” link for the recordings. There is no cost to view these sessions. Nebraska libraries are eligible for 1 hour of CE credit for watching this recording.
