Internet in Society

Stewarded by Dr. William Sederburg, Chair of the WNC Broadband Project; the WNC broadband leadership team has evolved a new community partner with the University of North Carolina at Asheville, in the Mass Communication Department; a new 2022 course titled Internet in Society.

“By definition, the Internet is a technical system: a communications infrastructure that enables networks around the globe to interconnect. It’s a network of networks.”

Broadband is the high capacity network of the internet.

Adapting Technology

How can a library respond directly and immediately to community needs?

COVID-19 has re-written how we interact among ourselves and our communities.

At the center of many communities is a library, a building or room containing collections of books, periodicals, and sometimes technology resources for people to use or borrow.

How can the capacity of a library better respond directly and immediately to community needs arising from the COVID-19 pandemic?

An ‘Adapting Technology’ program would allow for libraries to improve library operations through the purchase of technology that supports the efforts for libraries to reach residents, especially in support of education, health, and workforce development needs; and/or to respond to the pandemic and implement public health protocols.

Do you desire for your community library to become more adaptive with technology?

Please email Marc@WNCBroadband.org with your ideas.

Note: Marc also provides mobile hotspots at the NCWorks Career Center of Asheville to make broadband available for those needing online access to workforce development tools.
