Toward Gigabit Libraries
- Toward Gigabit Libraries
The "Toward Gigabit Libraries" project, funded by the Institute for Museum and Library Services (IMLS), has created a "Broadband Toolkit" and customized "Broadband Improvement Plan" designed to help public and tribal librarians learn about their current broadband infrastructure and internal information technology (IT) environment.
Through the use of the "Broadband Toolkit" and "Broadband Improvement Plan", librarians will be better equipped to improve their broadband services and become stronger advocates for their libraries' broadband infrastructure needs.
