Thanks for stopping by! This book is now free for you to read or share.

I wrote this book in 2011, but much of it holds true today. Understanding the digital divide means understanding the people affected by it and understanding the technology that thwarts them. This book is a combination of practical and philosophical approaches to working with the digitally divided. You can read more about this book on its website: Without a Net: Librarians Bridging the Digital Divide
