The Department of British and American Studies is proud to be part of an international consortium of 6 institutions from 5 countries participating in the project DSSI - DIGITAL SERVICES & SENIOR'S INCLUSION - THE POTENTIAL OF LIBRARIES & COMMUNITIES ALLIANCE IN THE POST COVID ERA.
The DSSI project aims to promote the rights of older people (low-skilled, living in remote areas, with mobility difficulties, migrants, etc.) to access information and lifelong learning. Therefore, the project will enable them to enjoy the right to participate in everyday society as independent citizens, through digitally active ageing.
This is facilitated by the use of library networks, as their role is starting to evolve into a hub for digital information and services, due to the accelerated digital transformation of the post-COVID era.
