Dundee Libraries up for Digital Award

Dundee Library & Information Services hope to pick up a prestigious award for work undertaken by their Opportunities project tackling social, digital and economic deprivation.

The project now receives referrals from a range of agencies including the third sector, welfare rights organisations and the Department of Work and Pensions for clients who lack digital confidence as a barrier to employment.

 Recent figures show increasing demand for digital literacy sessions delivered by staff and volunteers at Central Library. In April–June 2015, they delivered 1472 sessions rising in April-June this year to 2394 sessions, an increase of 62%.
