FCC and IMLS Focus on Libraries, Broadband, and the Future of Net Neutrality
by Nancy K. Herther
On April 17, the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) held a hearing in Washington, D.C., to focus on the role that libraries play in providing internet services in the U.S. IMLS—charged with advising the president and Congress about the library, museum, and information service needs of the American public—organized the event to "establish a public record about the impact of high speed broadband connectivity in America's libraries," explained IMLS director Susan H. Hildreth in her opening remarks. "It will help inform policy discussions and strategies to support broadband in the nation's libraries."
