How much do you understand about your library’s broadband capabilities or IT department’s needs? Since knowledge is power, the Toward Gigabit Libraries (TGL) Toolkit is available to help.
The project, funded by the Institute for Museum and Library Services, offers a TGL Toolkit and a customized “Broadband Improvement Plan” designed to help you learn about your current broadband infrastructure and internal information technology environment. Download these resources below in Quick Links.
Public librarians can also sign up to be a part of the Measuring Library Broadband Networks for the National Digital Platform (MLBN). The MLBN project helps you measure your library’s broadband. Learn how advanced broadband measurement capabilities can support the infrastructure and services needed to respond to the digital demands of public library users across the U.S.
