> >     The Chair of the New Opportunities Fund, Baroness
> >     Pitkeathley said "Whether people are inclined to use
> >     information communication and technology depends in
> >     part on what information they are able to have access to,
> >     which is why we are so pleased to be launching a
> >     programme aimed at developing content to support
> >     lifelong learning. In this way, as people cross the IT
> >     threshold there will be even more relevant and beneficial
> >     resources for them to explore. This new material will be
> >     freely available to internet users, wherever they are, at
> >     home, in public libraries or ICT learning centres."
> >
> >     "We are looking for new and exciting ways of using
> >     technology to enable people to access and learn to use
> >     information," added Baroness Pitkeathley. "This is an
> >     opportunity for libraries, archives, museums, galleries,
> >     education sectors and many other organisations to make
> >     their resources and information available to a much wider
> >     audience including many people who may previously have
> >     felt excluded from the learning process." 
> >
> >     The New Opportunities Fund intends to support the
> >     digitisation of material in three areas:
> >
> >     Citizenship in a modern state: This covers
> >     information that helps people to access services,
> >     including information on rights and obligations
> >     and how to be effective in dealing with different
> >     organisations.
> >
> >     Cultural enrichment: Material that reflects the
> >     heritage of a community, region or a country, or
> >     embodies an aspect of identity. It will also include
> >     different forms of art such as fine or performing
> >     arts, design or media.
> >
> >     Reskilling the nation: Including helping people to
> >     enhance basic literacy skills to improving
> >     understanding of other forms of information such
> >     as science, health and IT.
