Abstract

Starting from the belief that e-inclusion should be the strategic choice, and full engagement of every citizen is the key to the success and healthy development of e-society, this paper puts forward that “Information Commons” model can be applied to a larger target group: the disadvantaged citizens for their information rights and e-literacy education. Three IC applications: residents’ community IC, public library IC, and government agency IC are discussed.
