Digital citizens: Living in virtual and real cities

Not all cities are physical places. Sometimes, they are virtual

Roxann Riskin, the DiMenna-Nyselius Library Technology Specialist, and her team of tech students were inspired to take part in the 2012-2013 campus-wide "Cities" Events theme by creating the Digital Citizens Project: an initiative to explore the role of a good "digital" citizen in the fathomless "city" of the Internet.

This project is a multi-phased activity with themes on access, commerce, communication, literacy, etiquette, law, rights and responsibilities, health and wellness and security. View the PSAs.
