Greetings! The following came across my inbox and I thought it might of interest:

Funded by the Institute of Museum and Library Services, the Libraries Leading with TV Whitespace course provides a professional development opportunity for public librarians to learn about the applications of TV White Space (TVWS) technology. Find out how you can implement this emerging technology in your library and use it to expand wireless networks to advance access, inclusion, and crisis planning.

The course is available here:

Please also check out our “Beyond The Walls” awards program which will provide five $15,000 grants to libraries for the most innovative proposals to use TV WhiteSpace (TVWS) technologies to enable new library hotspots in the service of their communities. Content about the subaward program is available in module #5 of the course and posted here: http://www.giglibraries.net/Beyond-the-Walls

The first round of applications will be considered on a rolling basis with March 6 as the first round cutoff. If your library meets the necessary criteria, we will work with you to put together a project plan. Winners will be announced at the end of April 2017.

The application will open February 6, 2017. You will be able to edit your answers at any time.

Also follow along online with #BeyondTheWalls and @GigLibraries!

Please feel free to contact me with any questions.
