Resource of the week - Go Digi

Go Digi


"We’re living in a digital age but many Australians are being left behind and lack the skills to take advantage of the education, health and social benefits of being connected. 1 in 5 Australian adults are not online* - that's almost 4 million people."

"To tackle this, Infoxchange in partnership with Australia Post have commenced  a four year national digital literacy program with the ambitious goal of supporting more than 300,000 Australians to improve their digital skills."

Resource of the week - Pandora Archive

Have you ever wondered what happened to the 2000 Sydney Olympic website?

Most of us probably haven't considered it, but the National Library of Australia and it's partners have.

The preservation of carefully selected "Networked Documentary Resources", means that you can still access old websites.

Isn't that amazing?
