Librarians are a major part of universities, but they're almost entirely missing from the MOOC conversation. That's a big mistake.

Inspired by the Google Fiber for Communities project, Kansas City librarians are leading the way in a new national initiative, the K-20 Librarian. Initiated by the Kansas City, Kansas Public Library, we are a collaboration of school, public and academic librarians.
We've begun building bridges among K-12 schools, public libraries, colleges, universities and other organizations to extend digital learning opportunities and resource sharing. We will leverage emerging technologies such as high-performance Internet access anticipated from Google's gigabit fiber project.
Our collaboration is part of a national advocacy campaign launched by the Digital Village “Fiber to the Library” initiative and Internet2’s K20 program.
