Grace Agnew, associate University librarian for Digital Library Systems, said the new high-speed Internet is equipped with tools and applications intended for use in sectors of the American economy like education, medicine, energy and advanced manufacturing, which may change lives in the near future.
The University library system’s main focus is promoting new applications students and faculty have access to, Agnew said.
