The Media Awareness Network (MNet) has launched a high-profile campaign in association with Bell Canada and the Canadian Library Association (CLA) to equip parents with resources to help guide their children safely on the Internet. Unveiled during Canada’s first Web Awareness Day on February 20, libraries across the country will begin promoting the materials available from MNet, including online educational materials, printed brochures and checklists. Participating libraries will also begin hosting public workshops and open houses, launching joint initiatives with community groups, and announcing upcoming web awareness projects both in their branches and on their web sites.
