Internet2 Community Anchor Program
The Internet2 Community Anchor Program (CAP) works with community anchor institutions (K-12 schools, public libraries, colleges and universities, health care facilities, museums, and other cultural and historic organizations) to further their educational missions.
The Toward Gigabit Libraries Toolkit is designed to help public and tribal librarians learn about their current broadband infrastructure and internal information technology (IT) environment.
The Internet2 Community Anchor Program (CAP) works with regional and local research and education networks across the country to connect the full range of community anchor institutions to advanced broadband capabilities. Community anchor institutions include K-12 schools, public libraries, colleges and universities, health care institutions, museums, and other cultural and performing arts organizations.
CAP helps teachers, librarians, and other community anchor institution leaders utilize the nation’s advanced research and education network to promote learning in ways they previously never thought possible. CAP helps you:
- Connect to national treasures like the Smithsonian, the American Museum of Natural History, and the Library of Congress
- Access subject matter experts at the nation’s premier research institutions
- Collaborate with other community anchor institutions like schools, libraries, and museums
- Partner with schools around the world to learn about other cultures
- Interact with presidential libraries and historic sites through the Presidential Primary Sources Project
- Learn how others use the network to further educational missions
