Universal Service/Network Democracy

This site contains information and activities relating to Information Renaissance's Universal Service/Network Democracy on-line seminar. The seminar is an attempt to involve local teachers and librarians in the implementation process of the Telecommunications Act of 1996 and, specifically, in the development of rules regarding the Act's new Universal Service provisions for schools and libraries.

The present page contains pointers to project information.
