Free Webinar on Stimulus Bill Funding for Libraries

If you've been following the economic stimulus bill (The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 or ARRA) and its impact on libraries, you know that it allocates $7.2 billion to encourage investment in America's broadband infrastructure. Of that money, $200 million has been specifically allocated to expand public computing capacity in libaries and community colleges. If you need some practical advice on how to get funding for your library, or some help deciphering the language of the bill, Userful and Librarian's Yellow Pages are sponsoring a free webinar next Tuesday featuring John Windhausen of Telepoly Consulting. John is a Washington D.C. based expert on information policy and technology funding. The webinar is on Tuesday, May 19th from 1PM to 1:45 PM Eastern Time and in order to participate you'll need to register beforehand. All attendees will receive a free stimulus package information kit.

I had it on my schedule to attend the webinar "How to Get Stimulus Bill Funding for Your Library's Technology Infrastructure" but a system failure demanded my attention so I was not able to attend. Is this webinar going to be archived anyplace so I can see what I missed?

Hi Thomas, I just received word from Userful that the webinar was archived. You can find the archive here: http://www2.userful.com/media/webinar/stimulus-bill/. I was unable to participate as well, but I've heard great things about this broadcast. I hope it's helpful!
