FY 2014 Library Data

This past week, Funds For Learning attended the Schools, Health & Libraries Broadband Coalition (SHLB) Annual Conference and participated on a panel discussion tied to the FCC’s E-rate modernization efforts.  The panel discussed E-rate trends, and there was considerable interest from the SHLB attendees for more data pertaining to the library community.

FFL analyzed the Block 6 data from all 46,046 Funding Year 2014 Forms 471 and found that there were 4,063 applicants that had identified themselves specifically as library applicants.
