Pay particular attention to last statement made about the digital divide. I quote:

"Meanwhile, Executive Director of the Commission, Cordell Green said there was a need to bridge the digital divide. "I believe that it is something that we need to address our minds to in a significant way, as a significant issue is arising, which is, the more you are creating the content in digital, those who are not able to receive it might find themselves losing out on critical material that they need to access for development," he warned."

The University of the West Indies honours Library Professor

The University had a week long celebration in which Professor Emeritus Daphne Douglas, former professor and Head of the Department of Library and Information Studies was honoured.

Professor Emeritus Daphne Douglas is Jamaica's first female professor. She was also Head of Department for the Library and Information Studies School from 1976 -1980 and 1982 – 1993.
