Lifelong learning is currently a major concern of governments who wish to see their citizens remain employable while the job market changes. Critical to this are digital learning centres where learning is delivered through internet access or via CD-based packages. Access to these turns public libraries and community networks into 'multi media neighbourhood superstores' where print-based learning materials are enhanced by multimedia. The multiplicity of sources of learning materials and experiences reinforces and extends the traditional role of the librarian as mediator between the user and their needs. To support and foster these activities frontline public library and community network staff must be capable of offering user support and advice in a much wider arena. This requires training in new knowledge and skill sets.
This timely new book offers practical guidance and expertise for public library and community network staff in setting up, running and developing an effective digital learning centre based within the People's Network or in a related community networking initiative. It has a holistic focus on the use of ICT, taking staff beyond user training applications into areas of network management, e-learning, digitization, web design and XML that staff face on a day-to-day basis. Key areas covered include:

This timely book offers practical guidance and expertise for staff in libraries and learning centres in setting up, developing and managing effective digital services. The book has a holistic focus on the use of ICT, taking staff beyond user training applications into areas of network management, e-learning, digitization and web design. The emphasis is on creative utilization of ICT for front-line library and information services. The book is divided into three main parts: policy and legal background; front-line issues in the 21st-century public library; and content creation. PowerPoint files for the activities covered in each chapter are available for download and use from the website accompanying the book at www facetpublishing.co.uk/deliveringdigitalservices. This is an essential handbook to de-mystify this new area of development for all library and information staff. It is suitable for all staff working in, or setting up, a PC-based digital learning centre in information service settings within public libraries, community networking centres, and school and academic libraries.
