Starting a Wi-Fi hotspot Lending Program at Your Library - AzLA Virtual Conference
Check out the Internet! A Wi-Fi hotspot is a small, portable device with a cell phone data plan that can connect laptops and other devices to the Internet. Wi-fi hotspot lending programs allow library users to have remote access to Internet service for free, closing the digital divide and increasing the library’s role as a digital inclusion champion. The lecture-style presentation will include an overview of digital inclusion, device lending best practices, and considerations for starting a hotspot lending program. It will also include early findings from the State Library’s pilot hotspot lending program and suggestions for incorporating hotspot lending into library programming.
Nicole Umayam is a Technology Outreach Specialist at the Arizona State Library.
