The Public Library is impacted by the explosion of internet content and how the content is delivered. The expansion of internet access at the Library is necessitated by following three major trends:
- increasing consumption of richer and more varied content
- increasing use of video
- moving paper and local disks to the internet sources
Increasingly content is not just text, streaming video and audio delivers university courses, “how to” instructions and of course, entertainment.
Lastly, when content moves from paper based and disk based storage and presentation, the connection to the internet become a critical path.
This year, TI will upgrade the Library internet from 60Mbs to 1 Gbs. This will ensure the smooth and quick delivery of content to our library patrons at all the libraries in Long Beach.
