Abstract:The goals of this interactive, half-day workshop are to raise awareness of the U.S. Ignite initiative and the opportunities it provides to collaborate among iSchools as well as communities. U.S. Ignite brings together high-speed broadband resources to create test beds at a national scale. The initiative uses the Global Environment for Network Innovation (GENI), an NSF-funded cloud network that provides a fast virtual laboratory to develop new applications to address societal needs in healthcare delivery, advanced manufacturing, education and work force development, economic development, disaster response, and energy use. How can iSchools help libraries play a leading role in building inclusive next-generation Internet applications and services? We will showcase specific applications from communities, including Chattanooga and Cleveland, and projects such as the Video Mosaic Collaborative at Rutgers University. Municipal and institutional variations generate distinct local strategies to increase social inclusion in the digital world.
