New MLBN Explainer Video

Want to get a fantastic overview of our Measuring Library Broadband Networks (MLBN) project? Check out our new video, courtesy of Carson and Jessikha Block:

The video gives an explanation of the project and talks about what participating libraries can expect. It also has pictures of the measurement devices that libraries will install.

Importantly, the video talks about how the measurement data will help libraries. Libraries that participate in the MLBN project will be able to:

  • Establish baseline data to improve broadband performance
  • Advocate for faster and higher quality internet connections
  • Prompt richer conversations with broadband providers to maximize the value of the library’s broadband investment
  • Plan for the future of the library by documenting the speed and quality of the internet connection
  • Evaluate readiness for future services that require robust connectivity
  • Conduct scalability planning for the library’s internet connection
  • Improve technology confidence for library staff
