Research output: Other contribution

Abstract

The link between technology and equality arises from the role of Information Communication Technologies (ICTs) as enablers for political, social and economic forces within our society. The advocacy and adoption of ICT as the medium through which government services, educational resources and information are directed to encourage greater social, economic and democratic participation are now well established. The challenge for libraries is to pull together the disparate strands of legislation, influential reports and initiatives that highlight issues of equality and inclusion and integrate them into their services, including ICT-based services.
