This year's 7th annual eChicago event will provide insider summaries of statewide BTOP broadband projects and explore local wiki websites as an action plan for putting broadband to work.
eChicago is a place where people share what is happening and what could happen to make Chicago not only a digital city, but a more democratic one. Our goal is digital equality, and we connect people who dont find each other easily in their daily lives: all kinds of librarians with community workers and volunteers; students with professionals; social workers and library people; campus with community; government and grassroots.
Past and continuing organizers and contributors include: University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign Graduate School of Library and Information Science, Dominican University Graduate School of Library and Information Science, University of Illinois at Chicago/Jane Addams College of Social Work, the Daley Library, and the Institute for Policy and Civic Engagement, The Arturo Velasquez Institute Digital Workforce Education Society, The Benton Foundation, The Chicago Community Trust, Chicago Public Library, The Institute of Museum and Library Services, The Metropolitan Library System, Partnership for a Connected Illinois, Skokie Public Library, and LocalWiki
