Australia is currently facing a digital literacy challenge, as one in five adult Australians have not used the Internet. This paper looks at digital literacy and asks what this means for public libraries and how are they responding to technological change. In particular, it examines the Go Digi ( project, Australia’s first national approach to digital literacy. Go Digi is designed to improve the digital confidence of 300,000 Australians.
