Editor's Introduction: The Gates Foundation Global Libraries Project began in 1997 to empower U.S. libraries and expanded in 2000 to include libraries around the world. The project ended this year. The project goal was to ensure that anyone able to get to a public library could reach the Internet, and thus the opportunities it afforded. The foundation provided grants, public access computers, software, training, and technical support to libraries around the world. The project hosted an information-sharing online community called GL Voices, which officially closed on September 14, 2018.
While working with the Gates Foundation on the Global Libraries project, consultant Lindsay Bealko asked technology staff involved in the project what their favorite resources for staying current on library tech issues were. The following resource list is a compilation of their recommendations. We share it here with permission of Lindsay Bealko and the Gates Foundation.
