              Digital Participation connects two largely separate debates: On the one hand, broadband internet access is often heralded as a panacea to bring about not only connectivity, but also innovation, economic development, new jobs, and regional prosperity. On the other hand, community ...development research has established that access by itself is necessary but not sufficient to resolve digital divides and foster digital inclusion. Edited by thought leaders from the fields of education, youth studies, librarianship, communication technology, and digital media studies, this book is positioned as a link to connect these debates. It brings together an international collection of empirically grounded case studies that identify the specific digital needs, issues and practices of different types of communities as they seek to take advantage of high speed internet access. Collectively, these cases propose new ways for enabling residents to develop their digital confidence and skills both at home and in their local community. The book brings together researchers and practitioners from diverse backgrounds to engage in broad ranging conversations to advance knowledge that aims to foster digital inclusion and participation. The book is organised around key focus areas, such as digital skills enhancement, youth entrepreneurship, connected learning, community digital storytelling, community-led digital initiatives and policy development.

              Recent events in different authoritarian regimes, such as Iran and Egypt, had drawn global attention to a developing phenomenon in collective action: People tend to organize through different social media platforms for political protest and resistance. This phenomenon describes a... change in social structure and behavior tied to Information and Communication Technology (ICT). Social media platforms have been used to leverage collective action, which has in some cases arguably lead, finally, to political revolution. The phenomenon also indicates that the way information is organized in turn affects the organization of social structures with which it interoperates. The phenomenon also has another side, namely, the use of social media for activist suppression, state surveillance, or for the mobilization of collective action towards undesirable ends. Avoiding technological determinism, utopianism, and fundamentalism, Collective Action 2.0 explores the issues in detail, providing a balanced insight into how ICTs leverage and interact with collective action which will have impact on the current discourse. * Analyses social media and collective action in a deep and balanced manner* Presents an account avoiding technological determinism, utopianism, and fundamentalism* Considers the underlying theory behind quick-paced social media* Takes an interdisciplinary approach that will resonate with all those interested in social media and collective action, regardless of field specialism

              Professional development is important in most library settings in order to earn or maintain credentials. Academic librarians look for opportunities to earn tenure and special librarians look for ways to focus their training on a narrow subject area. Regardless of their reason for... looking for professional development opportunities, librarians of all types will find satisfaction in contributing to the profession at a higher level. Participating in professional conversations and decision-making that impacts others in the field, and sharing knowledge through publishing and presenting, are great ways to become better librarians. This book helps librarians get started, from establishing a brand and name recognition in their area of expertise to writing winning proposals for both publication and presentation. It covers how to conquer fears of public speaking, how to make presentations more dynamic, and suggests places to publish.
