Inclusive Gigabit Libraries


Upcoming Web Education Offering from LITA


Presented by Jon Gant (Center for Digital Inclusion, UIUC) February 21 and 22, 2013
Inclusive Gigabit Libraries will generate ideas to help libraries identify ways to lead in building next-generation Internet applications and services designed to operate on ultra-fast broadband networks that several communities are already building. Areas of national priority are advanced manufacturing, transportation, clean energy, education and workforce development, emergency preparedness and public safety, and health information technologies.
Participants will:

  • Understand what gigabit networks are and how they work in accessible terms
  • Identify strategies to leverage networks for new library services and opportunities based on case studies
  • Develop general concepts that would help apply the strategies in other contexts
