Calling all Texas public libraries: Take the TSLAC Public Library Speed Test!

2016 March 3
by Henry Stokes

The Texas State Library is currently collecting Internet speeds from all Texas public libraries (both mains and branches) with an online speed test. The test measures a library location’s Internet speed (how fast things load from the Internet) and automatically sends that data to us at the State Library. The data will be invaluable in our planning and help us determine any statewide needs for broadband.  Earlier this week, State Librarian Mark Smith highlighted the speed test and urged participation in his Update and Discussion of Strategic Direction webinar.

Email invitations with the link were sent out last week to all directors. If you didn’t receive the invitation, please contact Henry Stokes, 512-463-6624.

Many thanks to the libraries who’ve already participated:
