CILIP partners national digital access campaign

“The Chartered Institute of Library & Information Professionals has become a partner for Go ON Gold, a national campaign that raises awareness about the barriers faced by some people with disabilities accessing the internet and technology, and to help people overcome those barriers. Some four million disabled people in the UK have never used the internet and other new technologies such as smart phones. Most of us take the availability of digital technology for granted, but for some disabled people they can find themselves excluded from essential services such as opportunities for work, important information and services from the Government.” (via CILIP)
