Abstract

Equitable access to school libraries can facilitate digital equity just as digital equity results in equitable access and meaningful use in school libraries. The synergistic relationship of digital equity, inclusive access, and meaningful use of information and technology is unique to libraries. In the case of school libraries, teacher librarians have the opportunity, means and expertise to improve access to digital information and technology that will lead to a culture of meaningful use in their school community, and eventually in their greater community.
