About

Welcome to Community Informatics at the School of Library and Information Science at Simmons College.

What is Community Informatics?

Community Informatics is a growing interdisciplinary field of research and practice focused on advancing our understanding of the ways in which local communities use information and communication technology in support of community-defined development goals. From the study of public computing centers in community-based organizations to the design and implementation of community wireless networks, community informatics researchers and practitioners actively engage in projects that promote human and civil rights, self-determination, sustainable development, and social inclusion in the digital age.
