WiderNet 10-Year Anniversary

The WiderNet Project at the University of Iowa will be celebrating its 10 Year Anniversary this fall. Launched in 2000, the WiderNet Project distributes millions of digital materials via the innovative eGranary Digital Library. This library offers resources off-line to schools and institutions in developing countries that have little or no access to the Internet. WiderNet also refurbishes donated computers and printers, shipping them to schools throughout the developing world. Over 350 eGranary Digital Libraries have been installed in the field, $1,177,344 hardware and software donations have been received, 13,613 volunteer hours have been given to this project, and over 4,000 people have gone through the WiderNet training programs.
