Have you heard of the federal E-rate program<http://usac.org/sl>, but aren't sure if it is the right choice for your library?

However, recent changes in program rules streamlined the application process for many libraries. This one-hour webinar will cover the basics of E-rate including the overall program, the application process and filing deadlines.
