$720,000 TIF grant awarded to university's General Libraries

A $720,000 grant to expand the informational delivery capabilities of The University of Texas at Austin libraries has been awarded to the General Libraries by the Telecommunications Infrastructure Fund (TIF) Board.

The grant will support the purchase of servers to provide additional digital information, new public workstations, upgraded network switches, wireless network configurations and new adaptive technologies to assist library users with disabilities.

"We are extremely excited and honored to receive this enhancement funding," said Harold Billings, director of General Libraries. "Both onsite and remote users of all the UT Austin campus libraries, including the Ransom Center, the Center for American History, the Tarlton Law Library and the General Libraries, will benefit from this TIF grant."

TIF is a state agency that provides grants to enrich the technology infrastructure of Texas. The grant period for this funding began Aug. 31, 2001.

One hundred and fifteen institutions of higher education in Texas submitted and were awarded these non-competitive TIF grants totaling almost $20 million. Since its creation by the 74th Legislature in 1995, TIF has awarded about $700 million in telecommunications infrastructure grants.
