Improving Internet Access In US Libraries: the 'Toward Gigabit Libraries' Project

Wednesday, March 6, 2019

Sponsored by- Nebraska Library Commission While much worthy attention has been paid to improving "last mile" connectivity for rural and tribal libraries, it's the last 100 meters (the network inside the building) that is often overlooked and in need of improvement. The IMLS-funded Toward Gigabit Libraries project aims to address that problem through a self-service toolkit suitable for even the most novice of library workers. In straightforward, easy-to-understand language, the toolkit is designed to take lay people through technical concepts and tasks to create a Broadband Improvement Plan for each library. The plan is designed to help the library where it's needed most - including improvements to hardware, software and configuration, suggestions for training and education, resources to advocate for better connectivity, and more.
