New Webinar: Lending Wi-Fi Hotspot Devices in Urban and Rural Communities

2017 August 10
by Cindy Fisher

More and more libraries are realizing the potential of lending WiFi hotspot devices to their patrons and we are thrilled to be able to provide a new free webinar on Lending Wi-Fi Hotspot Devices in Urban and rural Communities on Wednesday, September 13th at 2pm Central.

Our presenter, Sharon Strover, Professor of Communication and Director, Technology & Information Policy Institute, UT Austin, will discuss various aspects of mobile hotspot device lending programs at libraries in metro (New York City) and rural areas (Kansas and Maine). She will cover some of the practical issues of lending WiFi hotspot devices, the challenges they can present, and what access may mean to targeted communities. Sharon is in the middle of IMLS-granted funded research on 24 rural libraries also loaning these devices and her team is also behind the very helpful “How To Hotspot Guide” for Libraries.

We hope you’ll join us on Wednesday, September 13th at 2pm for this great webinar! Register now!
