February 12, 2008 is the 5th annual Safer Internet Day, organized by Insafe, the European Internet Safety network. The United States is one of many participating countries. National hotline numbers as well as safety and the Internet is discussed in all its facets including gaming, mobile phones, and file sharing.
As a reminder, the Illinois Library Association and MySpace teemed up to create Internet safety bookmarks. In honor of Safer Internet Day, this might be a great time to purchase a set. YALSA also has resources for librarians about online social networking here.
Share your projects on helping to address safety and the Internet.
