OCLC acquires TechAtlas software with grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation

Entry Categories: OCLC News  

OCLC has acquired TechAtlas technology planning software using a grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

WebJunction, OCLC’s online community where library staff share ideas and use online resources to help them in their work, will further develop this Web-based technology management and planning tool with particular attention to helping public libraries create E-Rate compliant technology plans. E-Rate is a federal program that grants discounts for telecommunication services and Internet access to schools and libraries.

With support from the Gates Foundation, OCLC will now take over ownership of the TechAtlas product and WebJunction will begin an intensive round of design and development work to extend TechAtlas features, such as expanding the ability to allow consortia to review and approve technology plans for their member libraries.
