Esafety for libraries - Emerging eSafety issues

ALIA is very pleased to join with the experts from the Office of the eSafety Commissioner to bring you this seminar series about eSafety for people working in library settings. This series is essential viewing by anyone working with the public or who provides public access to the internet.

These sessions, tailored to libraries, will cover existing and emerging eSafety threats, provide evidence-based, targeted advice and strategies and further resources to improve eSafety in your library. Both seminars are free. Registration is essential and a recording will be made available after the event to people who have registered.
