Gigabit Libraries @ CLA

This half-day workshop presented by the University of Illinois was an excellent discussion of attempts to create digitally inclusive communities in libraries utilizing high speed Internet. Jon Gant from the University of Illinois introduced the session and new initiatives to provide affordable access to the Internet to previously underserved communities. This access to high speed Internet also creates opportunities for developers to test and create next generation apps.
