    Hi everyone and happy Friday!

    Most of you have probably seen this already, but I wanted to share a link to the Digital Inclusion Resource Library that the NDIA put together:
    library.digitalinclusion.org

    Here is some additional information about the library from the NDIA:

    At library.digitalinclusion.org, you'll find the beginnings of a new collection of documents, reports, teaching aids and other assets used by digital inclusion practitioners of all stripes. The platform will not only serve up community tools, but can point out to interactive content as well.
    Part of what will keep this project going is community engagement and activity. Your contributions of staff guidance, training plans, policy documents and more will help us all avoid repetition, and begin to more actively develop best practices around Digital Literacy, Home Broadband Adoption, Community Networking, Device Refurbishment, Hotspot Lending, Coalition Building and much, much more.
    We need practitioners and advocates to contribute all of their content, and when possible serve as mediators for the platform, helping us review metadata and suitability of submissions as we build and grow. 
     
    You can sign up to participate at digitalinclusion.org/contribute
    If your institution has a large collection of materials, bulk uploading accommodations can be made to help expedite the process.
