Australian Communications and Media Authority

Did you know?

* That Australians are supported in their development of literacy,
reading, education, business, community and digital access through a
network of approximately 9,000 school libraries, 1,600 national, state
and public library services, 42 university libraries, 387 TAFE campus
libraries, plus thousands of health libraries, law libraries and other
special libraries.

* That Australian Communications and Media Authority sponsors Library and
Information Week?
As part of its national cybersafety education program, the Australian
Communications and Media Authority (ACMA) is a major sponsor of Library
and Information Week 2009.

* That ACMA's cybersafety program provides information and activities for
children, parents, teachers and library staff so their online
experiences are both safe and positive.

* That recognising the important role that public libraries play in providing
internet access and educating users, ACMA has produced a range of
resources targeted to library staff. These materials, including four
information videos, the Cybersmart Guide for Library Staff, Cybersmart
Guide for Families and cyber rules poster, aim to complement existing
library policies and provide additional support for staff.
