eSmart OnlineeSmart Libraries Program

The Goldfields Library Corporation is pleased to be working towards becoming an eSmart Library with an aim to gain accreditation by the end of 2018.

There are three eSmart programs – eSmart Schools, eSmart Libraries and the eSmart Digital Licence. eSmart uses a cultural change approach to improve cyber safety and reduce cyber bullying.

The Alannah & Madeline Foundation and the Telstra Foundation formed a partnership in 2012 to develop and implement eSmart Libraries – one of Australia’s most significant community cyber safety initiatives. The eSmart Libraries program provides a framework to help integrate better cyber safety practices and promote the safe use of online technology in communities.

Visit the eSmart website for more information. 

As we work towards accreditation, we will be providing information, resources and learning opportunities for our library staff, visitors and members.
