Broadband Initiative Partners With Library Commission for Technology Training
The Nebraska Library Commission recently enhanced public computer access in 147 libraries across the state and then faced a challenge: New demands on library staff and volunteers to help patrons use the computers and the available technology. Now, in partnership with the Nebraska Broadband Initiative, new training will help library staff and patrons take full advantage of these resources.
These training workshops will focus on how broadband access can expand awareness of and opportunities to use technology tools. Sessions for library staff members are scheduled in Alliance, Atkinson, Kearney, Lincoln, Norfolk, North Platte and Omaha. Each location will host a monthly session, September through October.
