NCompass Live: Broadband + Libraries = Community Growth - Online 


Broadband is a foundation for economic opportunity, job creation, global competitiveness, attraction and retention of residents plus a better way of life for individuals, small businesses. As a result, small businesses, workers, and communities must have the broadband infrastructure, training tools to participate and compete in a changing economy. Libraries are and can play in key role in helping communities move forward.

The presentation will highlight relevant points from recent household and business surveys focused on broadband as well as resources available through the Nebraska Broadband Initiative. The Nebraska Broadband Initiative is funded through a grant to the Nebraska Public Service Commission. The Nebraska Information Technology Commission Community Council (NITC), University of Nebraska - Lincoln (UNL), Nebraska Department of Economic Development (DED) and the AIM Institute are cooperatively leading the effort to address the broadband planning needs of Nebraska’s communities.

Presenters: Connie Hancock, UNL Extension Educator and Charlotte Narjes, Special Projects Manager, UNL CARI - Center for Applied Rural Innovation
