O "[email protected] DIGITAL ", by Silves, was one of the projects selected by the Portuguese Association of Librarians, Archivists and Documentaries (BAD) to integrate a Web Site, on the contribution of libraries to the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals and the 2030 Agenda.
This is the Information Technology Project for Seniors, promoted by the Silves City Council, through the Municipal Library (BMS) and which began in 2018.
This initiative, which is aimed in particular at senior citizens, aims to combat the digital divide of older people by providing them with a teaching and learning process, digital literacy and information literacy skills.
