The eSmart 17
There have been many changes in libraries in recent years, however one thing that hasn’t changed is the vital role a library plays in connecting people with the information they need. With this in mind, Fraser Coast Libraries have created the eSmart 17 – an online brochure to help direct their customers to the best cyber safety resources.

Q & A
A new section of the newsletter. We are going to answer some of the more common questions that we receive. If you have a question you would like answered email us at

Q: The staff training modules have been a wonderful help. Is there any way of tracking which staff members have and haven’t completed them?

A: The training modules don’t ask for any personal information so there is no way to know who has or hasn't completed it. You can however, use the information we have provided to cut and paste into your own trackable training management system. Alternatively you may wish to use the staff checklist, which allows them to tick off the modules as they complete them and sign their name at the end.
