ALA Launches New E-Rate Website

ALA has launched a new website on the Library E-Rate. While the content will be expanded over the years to come, the website is live and ready for you to see. Go to to access the new website.

The aim of the new website is to help libraries get E-Rate funding. The site currently has news about the E-Rate,  contact information for each state and territory, a way for individuals/libraries to submit content to the site, contact information for the site managers,  a short glossary, and some very brief information on it.

The content definitely needs to be expanded. If you have information on this topic, this could be a good way to contribute to the larger community of librarians - submit your knowledge to the site.
