Introducing Transliteracy

The skills needed to be an active participant in today's society are rapidly evolving. Literacy is changing; more is needed than the ability to read and write. Digital literacy, media literacy, information literacy, 21st century literacy and other new literacies are all included in transliteracy. Some are fortunate enough to learn these skills in a classroom, but in many cases people are looking to libraries, all libraries, for the instruction they need. This session will cover the importance of transliteracy, the roles libraries play in educating patrons and what we can do to ensure our staff and patrons are transliterate.
