Carrie Lowe, director of the Program on Networks for the ALA Office of Information Technology Policy, participated in a Federal Communications Commission (FCC) workshop yesterday as part of a panel discussion on the future of E-rate.

Lowe’s official statement highlighted how the E-rate program has not only brought direct broadband access to libraries and schools but has also benefited their surrounding communities and should be a key component of a national broadband plan.
