Chicago Community Informatics: Places, Uses, Resources

Total Funding to Date



  • Kate Williams

In this Early Career Development project, Williams used a social capital/social network model to research actual and potential IT use in six disadvantaged communities across Chicago. The research analyzed how people and communities are already using computers and the Internet, and how their own lives and identities might be represented as part of our nation's cyberinfrastructure.

Funding for this project was provided by the Institute of Museum and Library Services Laura Bush 21st Century Librarian Program.
